Teaching and Research Interests:
Dr. Clemens Fox became a scholar in English Rhetoric and Composition because she was fascinated with the ways people use language to (re)shape their identities, and with the ways higher education empowers people. Her research interests, which are always intertwined with her teaching interests, center on the rhetorical situation, and how rhetors can assess it to improve on communication, especially in the rhetoric/composition classroom. She enjoys reading, writing about, and teaching Ancient and contemporary theories of rhetoric, especially when they can be applied to teaching nonfiction writing and its assessment. She is particularly interested in first-year composition and hopes to pursue conversations with high school and college students and teachers about what they understand college composition to be.
