Rhetoric Society of America 2014

San Antonio, Texas

This past weekend I presented at the Rhetoric Society of America conference. My presentation came from my article on Ozomatli that was published in alter/nativas. Below is a storify that documents some of my tweets and some of those posted by attendees using the hashtag #RSA14. Some of my favorite tweets were from the selfies that I took with other Twitter users I'd only met online, and because there was a conference presentation on selfies, so it had to be done.

Update: Starting in Fall 2014...

I am Assistant Professor in English at Santa Clara University

About this time last year I announced that I would be an Inclusive Excellence Postdoctoral Fellow, and it's been a good and productive year which will come to a conclusion with my having signed a job offer to begin as an Assistant Professor in Fall.

Hear Me on Syracuse's This Rhetorical Life Podcast

Featured on My First Podcast
At Syracuse, their graduate students have a podcast called This Rhetorical Life and I was asked to contribute to this episode's podcast that draws on Reflection's recent issue dealing with Latin@ Rhetorics.

What's pretty cool is that I'm quoted on my definition of Latin@ rhetorics, featured on the front cover of the podcast's webpage. I come in at about 9 minutes and 30 seconds. 


From the front page:

Episode 21 features a collaboration with the Fall 2013 special issue of Reflections: “Latin@s in Public Rhetoric, Civic Writing, and Service-Learning” about how scholars are defining Latina/o rhetorics and why it’s an important issue for the field right now.

Reflections Editor Cristina Kirklighter on Soundcloud

Overview of my Article Nuestros Refranes

I've mentioned my article in Reflections Journal of Public Rhetoric, Civic Writing and Service Learning previously here. At minute 5:30, Kirklighter discusses my article in the context of the introductory interview which has something of a dialogue with the Arizona subject matter and history of my piece.
