Dr. Katie DeLuca received her Ph.D. in Rhetoric, Composition, and Literacy Studies from The Ohio State University. She teaches courses on writing and social media, composition, and rhetoric, among other topics. Dr. DeLuca’s research focuses on the intersections of digital media studies, composition studies, and rhetoric, examining performative identity rhetorics and ethos in online spaces. She studies digital citizens’ everyday rhetorical and composing practices for the insights they can provide composition, rhetoric, and digital media studies. Her work has recently appeared in Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy, and she is co-editor of The Rhetoric of Participation: Interrogating Commonplaces In and Beyond the Classroom, forthcoming from Computers and Composition Digital Press/Utah State University Press. Her current research projects explore the relationships between online communities, collective ethos formation, and writing pedagogy.
