Jennifer Fisch- Ferguson is a second year PhD program student studying digital and cultural rhetorics at Michigan State University.
With previous experience in teaching English composition, Jennifer now engages students in the Tier 1 writing program, as a Teaching Assistant.
Jennifer’s areas of research interest are the shift of first year writing program to include social media as a tool of keeping cultural verbal traditions valid while moving students toward more academically based writing. Previous research surveyed African American female doctorate holders about the journey to obtain the degree and discuss the trend of more women getting a degree in higher education. She also interviewed four African American female Science Fiction authors to research how this community of writers stays successful in a genre that is fairly exclusive.
Overall Jennifer continues research and other projects that intersect the digital and cultural humanities area.
