Intern Update: Carrie Grant

We are thrilled to highlight past intern, Carrie Grant, on her recent accomplishments. Carrie is currently an assistant professor at Towson University. Her areas of expertise are professional and technical communication, community engagement, and feminist digital literacies.

Dr. Grant’s research examines trust-building tactics in technical communication, emphasizing strategies for reaching disenfranchised audiences with good reason for skepticism. She particularly works with girls’ summer technology camps, which build girls’ confidence in their STEM abilities through technical instruction intertwined with mentorship. Dr. Grant teaches applied professional writing projects using community engagement pedagogy and works with Towson’s G.I.V.E. (Grantwriting In Valued Environments) program.

Carrie was recently interviewed by More than Memos for a video titled, How Do We Manage Community Engagement Without Screwing Over the Community? The discussion in this video surrounds equitable community engagement, making space and time to benefit the community you’re working with. If you’re interested in this conversation and want to learn more about Carrie’s work you can access the video on Youtube.

Carrie Grant was the blog editor for issue 5 and the content coordinator for issue 6. She says about her time with SR, “My experience with Superstition Review very much launched my interest in the kinds of practical, professional communication I teach now.”
