3D Feeling: An Affective Model of Emotional Labor: This project uses computational methods to create 3D models from affective language analysis data. By analyzing language in terms of emotional labor and transducing that data into 3D form, I situate the invisible affective labor produced by women and people of color as having physical presence. This is currently in production by a group of Computer Science majors at Georgia Tech.

Zines as Tactical-Technical Feminism: This article situates the late 80s to early 90s phenomenon of feminist zines within a framework of feminist rhetorical practice by showing the ways instructional documentation acts as a tactical move to build coalitions in the face of patriarchy and capitalism.

#WomenWhoFarm: Unbelonging and agency in agricultural rhetorics: This article recovers the historical and contemporary ways farmers of marginalized identities are marked as belonging or unbelonging in agricultural space. By listening to women’s tellings of and on the farm through visual rhetorical means, I consider the rhetorics of female farmers as negotiations of technological unbelonging and agency within entanglements of masculine design.
