About Les Hutchinson

Dr. Les Hutchinson started at Boise State University in 2019 and is currently an assistant professor with the Department of English. She received her Ph.D. in Rhetoric and Writing from Michigan State University and an M.A. in English Composition from California State University – San Bernardino. Dr. Hutchinson’s work focuses on the intersections of privacy, surveillance, copyright, and intellectual property. Her dissertation, “Privacy, Property, and Sovereignty,” analyzes how social media platforms allow for cultural appropriation of Indigenous and Chicanx practices through their Terms of Service/Use and Privacy Policies. She is invested in the importance of these documents as technologically communicative rhetorical acts that codify relationships between users and tech companies.
