Christine Alfano is the Associate Director of PWR and has been a lecturer in the Program since 1998. She holds a BA from Brown University and PhD from Stanford and specializes in digital media rhetoric, video game studies, and technologies of writing. In her recent PWR courses, "The Rhetoric of Gaming," "The Rhetoric of Gender and Technology," and "Networked Rhetoric," Christine challenges students to explore how writing in different technological modes (from traditional Microsoft Word documents, to blogs, threaded discussions, social network profiles, video blogs and wikis) transforms the modern practice of communication and how we represent ourselves online and off in our increasingly technologically-media culture.
