I’m Lisa Phillips, a doctoral candidate specializing in environmental rhetoric and technical communication at Illinois State University. I plan to graduate with a Ph.D. in English Studies in May, 2016.
This website documents my development as a scholar and teacher. The site includes information on my research, teaching, and experiments (both successes and failures). My goal is to chronicle my interests and specializations and feature interdisciplinary work I have developed in other areas including visual culture, museum studies, visible rhetorics, sensory rhetorics, critical theory, ecocriticism, and American Indian studies. Some links featured on my blog roll pertain to particular classes I’ve taken, or have been a teaching assistant for, and they are context-specific for those classes, or teaching assistant duties.
Thank you for visiting my site.
