Research Interests

Difference theory cuts across the three areas of my research interests: Composition and Rhetoric (basic writing, open admissions and disabled students, histories of writing programs); Disability Studies (disability memoir and rhetoric, disability pedagogy); and Women’s Studies (feminist pedagogies and epistemologies).

Work in Progress

Dr. Lewiecki-Wilson is at work on a new book project, Discourses of Disability in Civic Debate: Minor Rhetorics and the Available Means of Persuasion, a study of contemporary cases in which public issues of important civic debate are embedded in stories of disability, revealing minority intersections of race, class, gender, and disability, the powerful rhetorical work of normative discourses, and the possible rhetorical moves for renewed public engagement with issues of citizenship.
