Jessica Enoch, PhD., is an associate professor of English at the University of Maryland, director of academic writing, and an affiliate member of the women’s studies department. Jessica Enoch’s teaching and research focus on feminist rhetorics and pedagogies, feminist memory studies, spatial rhetorics, rhetorical education, histories of rhetoric and composition, as well as literacy studies. Her second monograph Domestic Occupations: Spatial Rhetorics and Women's Work (Southern Illinois UP, 2019) works at the intersection of space, rhetoric, and gender to investigate how the material and discursive constructions of the home have both enabled and constrained women’s entrance into professional occupations and spaces. Her current research project considers how a feminist rhetorical analytic can shape and redirect memory studies. She has also published work on archival research methods and pedagogies, Kenneth Burke, and students' revision and reflection practices.
