Brief Bio: 

Connie Steel is a doctoral student in the Department of English at the University of Texas at Austin and currently serves as the Assistant Director for the Department of Rhetoric. Her dissertation investigates the relationship between genre, media and the regulation of rhetoric in a series of case studies examining Scottish and North British epitaphs. The project pays particular attention to ethical issues concerning the public display of identity, the making of public memory, and the representation of the deceased in the long 18th century. The project ends with a chapter looking at the ways digital technologies influence the interpretation, representation and remediation of 18th century figures.
