Research Interests

Broadly, Heather’s research interests are at the intersections of Rhetoric and Media and Technology Studies. She studies how people use digital tools to formulate and organize acts of resistance and dissent in the digital sphere. She also considers the affordances and limitations of algorithmic judgment as it affects online communities of dissent. In addition to both regional and national conference participation, Heather recently published an essay on feminist hashtags and online collective Anonymous in Commentary and Criticism, Feminist Media Studies.
