Assistant Professor

Dr. Kristen R. Moore works at the intersection of public rhetoric and technical communication, focusing specifically on the ways diverse communities might be served by critical theories, inclusive rhetorics, and activist scholarship. Of particular interest for Dr. Moore's research is the ways that seemingly mundane institutional infrastructure might serve as a sight of institutional and social change. She is currently working with Dr. Natasha Jones (University of New Mexico) on a research project that collects, reviews, and geo-maps inclusive scholarship and programs in technical communication.

Dr. Moore serves on the Diversity Committee for the Council for Programs in Technical and Scientific Communication and works on the Women in Tech Comm Initiative for the Association of Teachers of Technical Writing.
