Hello and welcome! I’m Danielle Mollie Stambler, and I go by Mollie. I’m an assistant professor in the School of Writing, Rhetoric, and Technical Communication at James Madison University. My research focuses broadly on rhetoric, writing, and communication, centering my commitment to accessibility, diversity, equity, and inclusion. I am especially interested in wellness rhetorics, with a focus on ableism, health disparities, literacies, and justice.
I am also committed to socially just pedagogy research and teaching practices. My scholarship and teaching approach writing and rhetoric by focusing on how texts mediate and circulate power and how, in turn, we can use writing for advocacy and change. I’ve taught courses in first year writing, social media writing, data visualization, technical and business writing, and digital and visual rhetoric. I am especially interested in working to foster multiple literacies and multimodality in the classroom.
