I am Professor and Chair of the Department of Writing, Rhetoric and American Cultures at Michigan State University as well as a faculty member in American Indian and Indigenous Studies. I am lead researcher for the Digital Publishing Lab at MSU, director of the Cultural Rhetorics Consortium, editor-in-chief of constellations: a journal of cultural rhetorics, past chair of the CCCC, and editor emerita of SAIL: Studies in American Indian Literatures. A widely published scholar and poet, my current book project, This Is A Story, examines the continuum of indigenous rhetorical production in North America, from beadwork to alphabetic writing. I am an unenrolled mixed-blood of Indiana Miami, Eastern Shawnee, and Euroamerican ancestry. In my spare time, I hang out with eccentric Native women artists & poets, and do beadwork.

Amy E. Earhart is Associate Professor of English and affiliated faculty of Africana Studies at Texas A&M University. Earhart’s work has focused on building infrastructure for digital humanities work, embedding digital humanities projects within the classroom, and tracing the history and futures of dh, with a particular interest in the way that dh and critical race studies intersect.
