I’m Laurie Gries, an Assistant Professor with a joint appointment in Communication and the Program of Writing and Rhetoric at the University of Colorado-Boulder.
Generally, my research centers on rhetoric, writing, and visual/material culture. I am particularly interested in forging connections between rhetoric, actor-network theory, and new materialism. My recently published book, Still Life with Rhetoric, draws on a wide range of interdisciplinary scholarship and focuses on circulation, visual/material rhetorics, methodology, and history. To gain a sense of my scholarship, on the whole, by reading article abstracts, listening to podcasts, and/or visiting my blogA more formal sketch of my background, pursuits, and areas of focus is available in my curriculum vitae. 

My graduate and undergraduate courses focus on writing, rhetoric, theory, 
new media with a particular emphasis on theory and research. I have also been heavily involved with an interdisciplinary team working to strengthen research and teaching in the Digital Humanities. To become acquainted with my teaching, please explore links to my teaching philosophy and course overviews.
