Areas of Interest

Contemporary Feminist Rhetoric and Literature


Lauren joined Louisiana State University's English department in 2015. Her primary focus is on contemporary feminist rhetoric and literature, and she is particularly interested in moments where rhetoric and literature merge within bodies of feminist work. More broadly, Lauren is interested in studies of corporeality and the body, gender theory, postcolonial theory, and archival studies. In educational pursuits outside of the classroom, Lauren volunteers for an international experiential learning organization that works to educate international youth on the cultural significance of human rights, diversity, sustainability, and conflict/resolution.
