May I Present Myself

Hello new viewers.

I'm Kendall Gerdes. I'm an intermittent blogger, a quality not generally admired in bloggers. I'm in my fifth year at the University of Texas at Austin, where I earned my M.A. in 2011. I teach for the Department of Rhetoric and Writing; this fall, I'm teaching a class on the Rhetoric of Failure. I also work as an Assistant Director in the Digital Writing and Research Lab, where I have worked on projects including the alternate reality game Battle Lines, as well as an ebook white paper now available in the iTunes Store.

I'm also on finishing a two-year term on the Governing Board of the Rhetoric Society of America. I'm on twitter @kendalljoy and you can meet me in the flesh at the upcoming NCA conference (as well as CCCC 2014 and RSA 2014). I also blog on tumblr at
