Stacy Rice

Stacy W. Rice was awarded the International Writing Center Association President’s Future Leaders Scholarship award for demonstrating strong leadership at UNCG’s Digital ACT Studio and Writing Center. Rice received this award for her dedication to multiliteracy center work by serving as the assistant director of the Digital ACT Studio, graduate assistant director at the Writing Center, graduate student reviewer of The Peer Review—a new peer-reviewed journal about writing and multiliteracy centers.

By receiving this award, Rice was able to attend and present at the IWCA Conference in Pittsburgh. Her presentation, “Repeatedly Wrestling with Revolution: Writing and Technology Anxieties of Past and Present,” focused on how writing centers are seeing an increasing number of multimodal/multimedia compositions; yet, there is relatively little scholarship on how to prepare peer consultants for such texts, leading to the potential for technology-related anxiety.

She is a doctoral candidate in English: Rhetoric and Composition.

As her career develops, she intends to serve as director or assistant director of a writing or multiliteracy center. She studies the intersections of mass media, political rhetoric, and war.
