• Name: Chris Lindgren, PhD Candidate
  • Place: Rhetoric and Scientific and Technical Communication program in the Writing Studies department at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities
  • Specialties: Computer programming as writing; Literacies; Embodied and distributed cognition
  • Research: I study writing and its materialities. My research examines how writing and texts support human activity, understanding, and the capacity to reflect, analyze, and respond. I'm currently working on my dissertation research, which situates coding activity as a writing activity as a way to learn more about the nature of writing, but also the social and technological dimensions of writing code. I also teach courses in technical communication and rhetoric and technology.
  • Portfolio: My past research appears in edited collections, such as Strategic Discourse: The Politics of (New) Literacy Crises; Writing Posthumanism, Posthuman Writing; and the Rhetoric and Digital Humanities. You can see more of my projects in my portfolio below or my CV.
  • For Fun: I enjoy cycling around my current home in Minneapolis, MN and finding good coffee and donut shops. I'm glad to say that the Minneapolis area's great for all of these things.
