About Jill McCracken

Dr. Jill McCracken is an Associate Professor of Rhetoric and Writing Studies in the Verbal and Visual Arts Department. She teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in rhetoric, writing, and women’s studies. Her primary areas of research focus on sex work and trafficking in the sex industry, the impact of sexuality education on marginalized communities, and women who are incarcerated. Drawing on ethnographic and qualitative research methods, she increasingly integrates community based participatory research in her work with sex workers and women who are and have been incarcerated. Her book, Street Sex Workers’ Discourse: Creating Material Change Through Agential Choice, is an analysis of street-based sex work representations, the power of everyday language, and how both influence the material conditions of individuals involved in street-based sex work (Routledge/Taylor & Francis Group 2013). Dr. McCracken’s work has been recognized through many awards and honors including the Women in Research and Philanthropy USF Faculty Research Award, the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching, and the Chancellor’s Award for Excellent in Service.
