Contact Kerri:

Kerri Hauman (she/her) is an Associate Professor of Writing, Rhetoric, and Communication and Director of the First-Year Seminar Program at Transylvania University (TU) in Lexington, Kentucky. She previously helped to create and served as Co-Director of the Digital Liberal Arts initiative at TU. She regularly teaches Digital Rhetoric, Feminist Rhetorics, Writing for/with Nonprofits, and First-Year Seminar courses.

Kerri deeply values the collaborative research and writing groups she has been part of and that have led to meaningful and sustaining work such as this website and its related projects as well as her co-edited collection Feminist Connections: Rhetoric and Activism across Time, Space, and Place (2020), dreamed up and completed with co-editors Katherine Fredlund and Jessica Ouellette. Her work has also appeared in Feminist Teacher and Pedagogy.

In her teaching and research (and everyday life), Kerri is interested in conceptions of community/belonging and social justice—and especially in the ways writing and language (and assumptions about them) and technology mediate community engagement and social justice work.
