Professional Interests

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. 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).
