My name is Jacob Friedman, and I am a Ph.D. student in the Rhetoric and Composition program at Washington State University. My primary areas of study are technological rhetoric, the digital humanities, and open access policy.
Prior to attending Washington State University, I received my MFA in Creative Writing from The New School in New York City, with a focus on fiction. I then spent three years working as an adjunct professor and writing center administrative assistant at Miami Dade College in Florida.
What I'd like to Get Out of the Workshop
Though not submitting my own manuscript, I hope to help in, and learn more about, facilitating scholarly workshops. I’m looking forward to learning more about feminist theory, and interacting with fellow scholars. I am also eager to see the current climate of research for insights into my own work.
As an MFA graduate, I have extensive experience participating in and managing writing and research workshops. As a writer and instructor of writing, I also have experience working with a variety of different genres of text.
In my own scholarship I have worked extensively with digital rhetoric and pedagogy, and have previously written on identity and anonymity in online spaces with regards to activism, classroom organization, and language learning.
