Professional Bio

Lynn C. Lewis' research focuses on rhetoric and writing studies, especially the interconnections among visual, digital, and multimodal texts. Her courses are writing-intensive and orbit  themes such as design and visual rhetorics, ethics, violence, and professional writing.

She emphasizes collaborative and community-building practices in her classrooms as well as focused attention on students becoming writers with a wider repertoire of approaches to writing tasks.

Her research has appeared in multiple journals and edited collections. Lewis' most recent publication, Pivotal Strategies: Claiming Writing Studies as Discipline, is in press with Utah/Colorado State U Press. This edited collection inquires into the rhetorical contexts and motivations factoring into how and why people choose writing studies as a discipline, especially as the field begins to take more seriously an anti-racist imperative that requires more explicit and conscious listening to scholars representing traditionally underrepresented voices.

Lewis is currently working on a monograph on Internet memes as well as an essay on collaborative mentoring with three of her former graduate students.
