Professional Interests

Molly J. Scanlon, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Writing and Communication in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS). She has taught a variety of graduate and undergraduate courses in writing, composition, and university (UNIV) first-year seminars. Dr. Scanlon's research interests center around visual rhetoric and rhetorics of identity. For her doctoral dissertation, Scanlon studied teams of comics writers and artists and their collaborative multimodal composing processes. Her findings were published in Composition Studies (2015). Currently, she is engaged in a research project funded by the Conference on College Composition and Communication's 2015 Research Initiative Grant to study how faculty construct professional identities through the transition from graduate school to the professoriate. Her work has also appeared in Reflections and ImageText.
