The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise" ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald, “The Crack Up”
I am Dr. Lee PhD (I love saying that because Beastie Boys not necessarily because I am much of a "title" person). This is my website! How it works: Under the title are quick links to all of my social media as well as my email and phone (if you're on a mobile browser you can find this material at the bottom of each page as well as in my media and presentations ). Although I don't consider these separate activities, highlights of my teaching, scholarship, and mentoring & service have been parsed out below and you can click on the title of any blurb to find more (all the white text is clickable). I am a project-based person so that's how the pages are organized; if you are here as a potential employer then thank you! and you'll find a more traditional arrangement with downloadable PDFs on my portfolio.
I hope to see you in Vegas for NCA where I will present a chapter of my dissertation as well as receive the Lucas Debut Publication Award while cheering on my advisor Barbara Biesecker as she receives the Faculty Mentorship Award from the Rhetorical & Communication Theory division. #BieseckerAdvisees
