Her dissertation, entitled Calling All Real Southerners: Participation and Promotion of Contemporary Southern Identity and Culture uses rhetorical and institutional ethnography to produce a rhetorical-cultural critique of the ways academic centers of southern studies, regional food and music festivals, and digital publications promote contemporary (U.S.) southern identities, and in turn how audiences respond and co(produce) those identities.
