Gwendolyn studies in the field of rhetoric & composition and focuses on multi-disciplinary artifacts by environmental scholar-activists who advocate for radical praxis. She uses a rhetorical genre studies approach to understand how these rhetors achieve their goals within the complex rhetorical situation of climate catastrophes, an important step for how publics are constituted. Additionally, she engages with critical animal media studies to reinforce the valuable perspective of rhetoric as “more than human” in media, in the classroom, and in the material lives of nonhumans and humans.
