I engage research by listening -- listening to unusual communities (wrestling fans, comic book readers, steampunks), listening to the diverse communities of Minnesota, listening to the media environment, listening to my students. Listening is my methodology; sometimes, listening is the object of my study; and it is through listening, from a position of cultural humility, that I enter into conversations with others. Come talk with me.
I have published in journals like the International Journal of Listening, Archival Science, Philosophy and Rhetoric (where I won the Rohrer Award with my co-author, William Keith), Southern Journal of Communication, Nordlit, Composition Forum, Reference & User Services Quarterly, Linguistic Research, Humanities, Enculturation, College Composition and Communication, Media Ethics, and The Popular Culture Studies Journal, among other venues.
I have placed essays in Clockwork Rhetoric: The Language and Style of Steampunk (Mississippi), in Sports Fans, Identity, and Socialization: Exploring the Fandemonium (Lexington), Iconic Sports Venues (Peter Lang), Political Landscapes of Donald Trump (Routledge), A Century of Communication Studies (Routledge), What We Are Becoming: Developments in Undergraduate Writing Majors (USUP), Engaging Audience: Writing in an Age of New Literacies (NCTE), Coming of Age: The Advanced Writing Curriculum (Boynton/Cook), the SAGE Handbook of Rhetorical Studies, Ecologies of Writing Programs: Program Profiles in Context (Parlor Press), God and Popular Culture (Praeger), Finding McLuhan: The Mind, the Man, the Message (University of Regina Press), and other collections.
