Research Interests and CV

Brett Headshot

I’m  a fourth-year PhD candidate in Composition and Cultural Rhetoric (CCR) at Syracuse University.  I have a B.A. in Philosophy (2013) and M.A. in English (2015) from St. Bonaventure University.

My research interests center on questions of authorship, intertextuality, and play. This informs my dissertation project, which reframes our rhetorical understanding of games in terms of community engagement and circulation across platforms.

Lately, I have taken a particular interest in post-truth rhetoric, fake news, media literacy, algorithmic rhetoric, and the intersection of legacy and social media, which has increasingly informed my teaching.

Here is my current CV.
