Composition and rhetoric, sociolinguistics, and multimodal composition pedagogy

JACYLN FISCUS-CANNADAY, Assistant Professor, holds a MA and PhD in English from the University of Washington - Seattle and a BA in English and Linguistics from the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor. Her research and teaching is situated at the intersection of composition studies, linguistics, and feminism, broadly exploring how communication works, how people think it should work, and how we might address those ideologies through pedagogy and policy to better work across difference. More specifically, Dr. Fiscus-Cannaday specializes in multimodal composition and rhetoric, sociolinguistics, and feminist theory/methodologies. Her current research project utilizes a feminist perspective of the rhetorical nature of reflection to provide insight into how to ethically navigate and negotiate differences in language, identity, and ideology in the composition classroom. Dr. Fiscus-Cannaday teaches courses in composition history, theory, and practice.
