Hi! My name is Beck Wise and I'm thrilled to be returning as a HASTAC Scholar for a second year.
I'm starting my third year in the Rhetoric PhD programme at the University of Texas at Austin, and earnt my MA in Women's and Gender Studies at UT, too. I'm a member of the Digital Writing & Research Lab and will be leading our rhetoric & technology podcast, Zeugma, for the remainder of the semester.
My research centres on representations of the anatomic body in popular culture, with particular attention to the ways that race, gender and sexuality are constructed, elided and erased in those spheres.
