About Juliette C. Kitchens

Juliette Kitchens, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of writing in the Department of Communication, Media, and the Arts in the Halmos College of Arts and Sciences (HCAS). She teaches a range of composition courses, courses in the Writing Minor, and courses in the M.A. in Composition, Rhetoric, and Digital Media program. She designs courses to reflect her student-centered teaching philosophy and encourage writers to investigate their interests, communities, and (digital) environments.

Dr. Kitchens' research interests include identity studies, rhetorics of popular culture, rhetorics of technologies, and post-process pedagogies. In collaboration with two of her NSU colleagues, she received a 2015 College Composition and Communication Research Grant and a 2017 President’s Faculty Research and Development Grant to investigate the construction of faculty identities. She regularly presents at international, national, and regional conferences representing a range of interdisciplinary scholarship. Her most recent publications include “Object Entanglements: From Postmodern Subjectivity to Posthuman Thingness in Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse,” (Studies in Popular Culture 38.1) and At Home in the Whedonverse: Essays on Domestic Place, Space, and Life(McFarland).
