Director of the Writing Center
Assistant Professor of Composition and Rhetoric
Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, Stephanie did her undergraduate work at a small liberal arts college in St. Louis named Maryville University where she graduated from the Bascom Honors Program. Perhaps this early exposure to the liberal arts was a precursor of things to come as she now teaches at a similarly small liberal arts college, frequently in the John F. Reed Honors Program.
At FLC, she teaches Comp/Honors 350 (Rhetoric of Inquiry), Comp 252 (Professional and Technical Writing), and occasional honors seminars on topics that range from the science fiction writing of Philip K. Dick and Robert A. Heinlein to the impact of Julia Child and Anthony Bourdain on the world of cooking. She has also taught ED 350 (Principles of Peer Education), a course for prospective tutors as well as experienced tutors seeking CRLA Level II certification, as well as Comp 352, Advanced Technical Communication.
Stephanie's research and teaching interests include social networking sites, video games, and Japanese anime. Her textbook e-Dentity, a topics-based reader on the subject of online identity and composing processes online, was published through Fountainhead Press in 2011. You can read the introductory chapter here. Her article "Digital Divide 2.0: 'Generation M' and Social Networking Sites in the Composition Classroom" is one of Computers and Composition's most downloaded and most cited articles. She is Project Editor for Utah State University's Computers and Composition Digital Press, Assistant Editor for Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy, and copyeditor for Community Literacy Journal.
Stephanie is the Director of the Fort Lewis College Writing Center and would love to speak with you about integrating and supporting writing in your course, no matter the discipline or level. You may also contact her for classroom presentations about the Writing Center or other writing-related topics.
