Emily Crosby is a Visiting Instructor for the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program, and a recent Ph.D. in the Department of Communication. Emily teaches Introduction to Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies as well as Sex, Race, and Popular Culture. Her academic concentrations include rhetorical criticism, feminist and critical theory, and visual rhetoric. Emily’s dissertation research explores the rhetorical strategies employed by female country music stars during the “second wave” of feminism, as means to temper radical sentiment and construct palatable personae amidst conservative gatekeepers. Emily’s two other recent projects examine double binds in sports rhetoric through an intersectional lens, and critique contemporary Orientalist discourse through a postcolonial lens. Her Master’s Thesis analyzed mommy blogs’ role in destabilizing mothering ideologies and diversifying hegemonic online culture. She is developing a new course on gender and the digital, to be taught fall 2017.
