My name is Ashley Mack, and I am a PhD Candidate in Communication Studies (Rhetoric and Language) at UT Austin and an instructor of Communication and Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies at Wayne State University. My commitment to social justice and equity fundamentally inform my research and teaching. I am a critical feminist rhetorician who examines rhetorics of health/the body and cybercultures. I am currently working on my dissertation, which explores maternity culture and its iterations.
My personal blog "The Commons" is dedicated to my musings about media, politics and culture, and everything academic and silly.
The blog "My Original Oratory," is an educational initiative in partnership with the National Forensics League to provide topics and information about public speaking to high school students.
I live in Detroit with my partner and our two adorably frustrating English Pointers. I spend my free time gardening, eating, and kicking butt at fantasy football.
