Regina Duthely is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA. She specializes in Black feminist rhetorics, hip-hop rhetoric and pedagogy, and digital composition and rhetoric. Her research deploys Black feminist readings of popular culture and Black women’s digital rhetorics to argue that the use of (dis)respectability politics in the public sphere is a means of liberation for Black women. She published “Black Feminist Hip-Hop Rhetorics and the Digital Public Sphere” in Changing English and “Hip-Hop Rhetoric and Multimodal Digital Writing” in The Routledge Handbook of Digital Writing and Rhetoric. She is currently working on a monograph on Black women’s digital rhetorics.
