Mollie specializes in rhetorical criticism and theory. Her research focuses most heavily on examining how social justice activists--particularly those aligned with the environmental justice and/or feminist movements--navigate rhetorical challenges. She is also interested in the ways in which media recuperate racism and/or misogyny. Her work has been published in Argumentation and Advocacy, Women's Studies in Communication, and The Howard Journal of Communications. She is currently working on a project aimed toward understanding how anti-fracking activists in New York rhetorically align economic prosperity and environmental health. Mollie teaches courses in rhetorical criticism, gender, and interpersonal communication.
