Greetings! My name is Kendall Turchyn and I am a graduate student currently pursuing a Masters in Rhetoric and Composition. I am presently working on my thesis on the intellectual and transgressive rhetoric of Thomas Jefferson’s favorite granddaughter, Ellen Randolph Coolidge. Aside from being a full-time student, I am a peer writing assistant, teaching and research assistant, book reviewer, and historical interpreter.


Some of my interests include:

  • Rhetoric and Composition
  • Feminist and Women’s Rhetorics
  • Recovery of Historical Women Rhetors
  • History of Rhetoric
  • Classical Rhetoric [specifically Aristotle]
  • Visual Rhetoric
  • Digital Humanities
