Biography

Laura Whitebell is a Lecturer in the Writing, Speaking and Argument Program. She holds a BA in English from the University of York (UK), an MA in Nineteenth-Century Studies from Sheffield University (UK) and a PhD in English from the University of Rochester. Her first-year composition course currently focuses on conspiracy theories and fake news, an area that intersects with her wider research interest in how language and texts play a role in shaping national and transnational identities, spaces and movement.
