Alice Temporarily Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Turns out that when you study digital literacies and social media, you tend to be more active around the web than on your own site. That’s the case for me, anyway. Others are much better at this than I.

So if you’re looking for more information on me and my whereabouts and thoughts, thanks! You might find out more by visiting my Friendfeed, my public Twitter account, or my Facebook page. I am more active there than here, mostly because I’m saving all my writing energies for the book manuscript I’m working on. Trying to be a diligent junior academic, you know.

And if you’re just looking for some quick information on who I am and what I do, visit my “About” page here. The gist: I’m an assistant professor of English at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, where I am a member of the Rhetoric, Composition, and Linguistics Program. I teach first-year writing courses and graduate courses on videogames and social media.

Before I came to ASU I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Comparative Media Studies Program at MIT, where I worked with Henry Jenkins on the New Media Literacies Project. I did my PhD in English (Rhetoric and Composition Studies) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I was a founding member of the Games+Learning+Society program in the School of Education. It was directed by James Paul Gee and Kurt Squire, with whom I worked to develop some of the early research on videogames and literacy learning.

My work has shifted a bit from videogames to social media more broadly. I consider myself a digital literacies researcher, especially with regard to how people use language in social media spaces, both online and off.

Thanks again for stopping by!
