Re-#Introduction for the wave of new folks?
I'm a masters student and TA in communication and rhetorical studies, currently finishing up a thesis using methods from discourse analysis to examine how identities--in particular, gendered identities--are constructed, applied, and disputed on 4chan's /r9k/ board. Coming soon, to a Proquest near you.
In general, my interests revolve around: new materialism, post- humanism, internet studies, and discourse analysis.
I don't bite. Well, sometimes.
