Featured here are examples of various digital projects that I have planned and developed. These projects demonstrate a range of skills, including activity mapping, wireframing, designing and editing websites, and creating a database. This work was completed using existing online tools, such as Inklewriter to develop an interactive story, and also coding (html, css, php, and/or MySQL).
Safely Social began as a digital project for a class centered on social justice and access. Myself and two classmates worked collaboratively on proposing the design and development of a smartphone app to support domestic violence survivors in navigating privacy settings on smartphones. This research project has been presented on at national and international conferences, and has a book chapter forthcoming in the book Composing Feminist Interventions, edited by Kris Blair and Lee Nickoson. Below are a few examples of materials developed as a part of this research project.
- Map of activity stream from early planning and assessment of relationships and interactions associated with domestic violence.
- Interactive wireframe of the proposed smartphone app.
As an associate editor for Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy, I assist in copy- and design-editing webtexts from their initial acceptance until final publication. Each webtext undergoes editorial work from multiple editors over the duration of the process in order for each editor to complete their work with attention to a specific area (e.g., design editing, style editing, etc.). For the Spring 2019 issue, I was directly involved in editing the following webtexts:
- “A Review of Digital Rhetoric: Theory, Method, Practice by Douglas Eyman” by Ruth Li
- “A Review of The Online Writing Conference: A Guide for Teachers and Tutors” by Beth L. Hewett Erin Fitzgerald
- “Motherhood on the Screen: An Exploration of Wounds Opened and Closed through Home Video” by Alexandra Hidalgo
- “Offshore with Cynthia Haynes” by Charlotte Lucke & Diane Quaglia Beltran
- “A Review of The Age of the Image: Redefining Literacy in a World of Screens by Stephen Apkon” by Estefany Palacio
- “A Review of Naming What We Know: Threshold Concepts of Writing Studies edited by Linda Adler-Kassner & Elizabeth Wardle” by Amber Simpson & Nick Stanovick
- “A Review of Academic Ableism: Disability and Higher Education by Jay Timothy Dolmage” by Manako Yabe
During my doctoral coursework, I created digital projects using html, css, php, and/or MySQL. The content of these digital projects are not all directly applicable to my research. However, these projects showcase my capabilities with planning and developing digital projects as well as my ability to code digital texts.
