My work is situated at the intersection of rhetorical theory and continental philosophy. I hold the Kenneth Burke Chair of Rhetoric & Critical Media Philosophy at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland, and my research and teaching interests include rhetorical theory, critical theory, digital culture, and continental philosophy.

I am the author of Breaking Up [at] Totality: A Rhetoric of Laughter (Southern Illinois UP, 2000) and Inessential Solidarity: Rhetoric and Foreigner Relations (University of Pittsburgh, 2010), co-author of Women’s Ways of Making It in Rhetoric and Composition (with Michelle Ballif and Roxanne Mountford, Routledge, 2008), and editor of The ÜberReader: Selected Works of Avital Ronell (U of Illinois P, 2008) and Reading Ronell (U of Illinois P, 2009). I am currently co-editing, with Michelle Ballif, the first special issue of Philosophy and Rhetoric (2014), which will be titled "Extrahuman Rhetorical Relations: Addressing the Animal, the Object, the Dead, and the Divine."
