Beck's headshotI’m Beck Wise, a writer, scholar and educator based in Austin, TX.

I’m currently a PhD student in English at the University of Texas at Austin, specialising in Rhetoric. My research focuses on bodies and gender in public culture, and I’m particularly interested in sites where science and technology intersect with mass culture.

I am also an Assistant Director of the Digital Writing & Research Lab, where I work to develop innovative pedagogical practices around new media, emerging technologies and composition.

I completed an MA in Women’s and Gender Studies in the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies at UT in 2012, and I hold 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.
