Hi, I’m Sarah Riddick. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Humanities and Arts at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, where I teach courses in rhetoric & writing.
I hold a rhetoric PhD from the Department of English at the University of Texas at Austin, where I taught in the Department of Rhetoric and Writing; a master’s degree in comparative literature from University College London; and bachelor’s degrees in English and Spanish with a minor in creative writing from the Honors College at Virginia Commonwealth University.
My work explores the relationships between rhetorical theory and methods, digital rhetoric and writing cultures, and emerging media.
