Lisa Dush photoI’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and Discourse at DePaul University in Chicago. I teach graduate courses in DePaul’s MA in New Media Studies program and the MA program in Writing, Rhetoric, and Discourse, as well as undergraduate courses in professional writing and new media. I also serve as the Director of the MA in WRD.

My research interests include new media storytelling and rhetorical practice in the digital age. Much of my teaching and research is built around efforts to partner students with Chicago-area nonprofit organizations, to together develop and deploy new media storytelling projects.

Prior to my arrival at DePaul, I taught writing and oral/visual presentation in the WAC program at MIT and ran a digital storytelling training business called Storybuilders.
