Center Graduate Students: Annie Kelvie

Having spent most of her life in sunny, dry Colorado, Annie is now trying her hand at Midwestern winters and vegetable gardening in great soil. After earning a BA in Religious Studies and Urban Studies at Colorado College in 2007, she spent three years in the field of social work before returning to school to get certified in teaching secondary English. However, along the way, she accidentally fell in love with rhetoric, composition, and writing studies after graduating with her MA from the University of Northern Colorado in 2012.
My current research is a qualitative project that focuses on the intersections between religion and literacy, as well as how semiotic remediation is enacted in religious contexts. I am also serving in the Undergraduate Rhetoric Office as the Curriculum Projects Coordinator and have also been a Peer Mentor to new TAs, so I am also interested in issues of pedagogical training and support for instructors.
