My Article in Best of the Journals in Rhetoric and Composition 2020

Super proud that my Composition Studies article "Decolonial Potential in a Multilingual FYC" was selected by the Parlor Press editors to be included in this collection. I feel really honored that Laura Micciche, then editor at Composition Studies, nominated my article "Decolonial Potential in a Multilingual FYC" for the collection *Best of the Journals in Rhetoric and Composition 2020*. I was also proud that it was selected by the editors for the inclusion in the collection of really excellent scholarship that the editors described as "transformative." Thank you to Laura and the Parlor Press editors. I'm looking forward to getting a copy.
