“There is a moment when people come together for a common cause. They are unified in an identity named for the bodies that advocate, congregate, compose, and work together for a non-violent, ethical solution to a problem. That moment is where we see the power of communication in all its kinetic force. I seek ways to maximize that potential, and I seek ways to teach it.”

Bryan Lutz is a Ph.D. student in Rhetoric and Professional Communication at Iowa State University. His research navigates the convergence of studies in new media, rhetoric of advocacy, and composition pedagogy. His recent publication, “Composing to Change Nations: Teaching New Media and the Arab Spring in First-Year Composition,” argues a strategy for teaching composition with new media that empowers students to become participants in social movements in the United States. Bryan hopes to develop this thesis into a book-length dissertation while making a difference in every way he can along the way.
