Professional headshot of Brandy DieterleHi, there! My name is Brandy Dieterle. I’m a Lecturer in the Department of Writing & Rhetoric at the University of Central Florida where I teach and mentor undergraduate and graduate students. My research and teaching is centered around digital rhetorics and literacies, multimodal composition, and new media studies. I’m especially interested in how these subject areas intersect with identity and gender studies as people engage in self-presentation practices.

In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors (walking, hiking, running) and amateur photography (I use my iPhone, so truly an amateur). When indoors, I enjoy reading various kinds of fiction novels and I recently began cross stitch and have really enjoyed the process of making with my hands.
