Dr. Delagrange specializes in digital media and rhetoric. She won the 2010 Kairos Best Webtext Award for her article, "Wunderkammer, Cornell, and the Visual Canon of Arrangement," in which she demonstrated how inquiry and argument change in nonlinear digital media. Her most recent work, a digital project titled Technologies of Wonder: Rhetorical Practice in a Digital World, the first born-digital book put forward for tenure at a Big 10 university. Technologies of Wonder was awarded the 2011 Computers and Composition Distinguished Book Award, the 2012 Winifred Bryan Horner Book Award, and the 2013 Conference on College Composition and Communication Outstanding Book Award. More recent articles address digital pedagogy and teaching in MOOCs.
Professor Delagrange’s current research project is an abecedary piece in which she will represent each letter of the alphabet with an example of visual rhetoric. Professor Delagrange is available for independent studies.
