Anna Zeemont

I’m a PhD student in English here at the GC, where I concentrate in Composition-Rhetoric and American Studies. Broadly speaking, I study literacy, particularly in urban educational settings such as CUNY. I’m especially interested in using decolonial and critical-race approaches to conceptualize the university, writing pedagogy, and education justice. Other interests include digital/multimodal pedagogies and rhetorics, archival research, Critical University Studies, (neo)liberal critique, and feminist theory. Prior to starting my PhD, I earned a BA in English and Biology at Oberlin College and worked as a secondary educator in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I grew up. I currently teach composition at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and work as a consultant at Baruch College’s writing center.
