Headshot of Beck WiseI’m Beck Wise, a writer, scholar and educator based in Armidale, NSW.

I’m currently a Lecturer (assistant professor) in Writing at the University of New England. My research interests centre on gender, new media and public culture, with a particular focus on science and technology in popular culture. I hold a Ph.D in English, specialising in Rhetoric & Writing, from the University of Texas at Austin and previously served as an Assistant Director of the Digital Writing & Research Lab, where I developed innovative pedagogical practices around new media, emerging technologies and composition.

I also hold an MA in Women’s and Gender Studies from the University of Texas and a BA (Hons) in Gender and Cultural Studies from the University of Sydney.

Before returning to academia, I worked as a feature writer and editor for a variety of publications in Australia and abroad, as well as on a freelance basis.
