About Andrea Olinger

Dr. Olinger joined the faculty in 2014 after receiving her PhD in English with a specialization in Writing Studies from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her current research focuses on how writers in different disciplines understand and practice “style." She is also a co-founder of the UofL Discourse and Semiotics Workshop and a Co-Coordinator of the CCCC Standing Group on Writing about Writing pedagogies.

Her research broaches a wide range of topics, including writing across the curriculum/writing in the disciplines; metalinguistic awareness and linguistic (and semiotic) flexibility; language and literacy ideologies; methods of discourse analysis, qualitative research; second language writing, translingual approaches to writing; literacy and composition studies.
