Justine Neiderhiser

Doctoral graduate

Justine Neiderhiser’s research interests include rhetorical genre studies, corpus linguistics, composition theory and pedagogy, writing assessment, and the history of English. Recently, she has spent time examining the generic elements of literary anthologies, using their wide array of divergent features to raise questions about genre variation and how genres like the anthology evolve and even decay. She is also deeply invested in issues surrounding the assessment of student writing, most notably in her considerations of the genres through which students are assessed and asked to assess themselves in the first-year composition course.
