Dr. Allison Hitt is Assistant Professor of Rhetoric and Composition at Ball State University. She teaches a range of writing courses, including professional writing and editing, digital literacies, and composition pedagogy. Hitt’s educational backgrounds in cultural rhetorics and disability studies influence her commitments to developing pedagogical environments that affirm students’ embodiments and provide multiple access points for engagement and rhetorical expression. Her research focuses on how disability is constructed, mediated, and contested within institutional systems. More specifically, she’s interested in whose stories and bodies are valued within cultural and disciplinary histories and how instructors can collaborate with students to theorize and enact more socially-just pedagogical practices. Hitt's work has been published in The Routledge Handbook of Digital Writing and Rhetoric, Business and Professional Communication Quarterly, Composition Forum, The Oxford Guide for Writing Tutors: Practice and Research, and Praxis: A Writing Center Journal.
