About Kelly A. Myers

Dr. Kelly Myers started at Boise State University as a Visiting Assistant Professor in 2013 and is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of English. She teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in argument, nonfiction and creative nonfiction writing, and rhetorical theories, and her research explores the role of emotion and transformation in the ancient Greek concepts of kairos and metanoia (opportunity/missed opportunity). In recent articles, Dr. Myers applied the kairos and metanoia partnership to rhetorical theory and writing processes. After completing her Ph.D. at the University of Arizona, she accepted a postdoctoral fellowship, followed by a lectureship, at Stanford University. At Stanford, she taught courses on rhetoric and sports (including women in sports, Olympic rhetoric, and the science of sports). In addition, she developed the Voices of Champions writing project with the Stanford Athletic Department and created wheelchair basketball clinics with the Residential Education program. Dr. Myers is the faculty mentor for The Ethos Project, a student-run organization and annual symposium event at Boise State that focuses on undergraduate student voices. The Ethos Project highlights the engagement and passion of students from across disciplines and creates a space for collaboration that bridges the campus and local community.
