Bio

Mariah Kemp is an RPC PhD student who graduated with a Master’s in RCPC from Iowa State and a Bachelor’s in Rhetoric & Writing from The University of Texas at Austin. Her research interests include narrative, trauma, liminality, identity, and memory. She received a Freda Huncke Graduate Teaching Fellowship for 2017-2018, and has taught Foundational English courses, Business Communication, and Public Speaking. Outside of the university, she enjoys road trips, painting, and cuddling her three pet rats. Her home is the Southwest, where the dry heat envelopes you and crackles against your skin, and the lightning strikes purple and plasma white—but Ames makes a pretty good home for the moment.
