Jaqueline McLeod Rogers Title: Professor, Rhetoric, Writing and Communications


Research Interests

Dr. Jaqueline McLeod Rogers is a feminist scholar with a long-term commitment to developing and promoting writing- and language-based education courses responsive to cultural diversity. At UWinnipeg, she currently teaches a writing course in the Transition- Year Program, an access-based program to welcome non-traditional, mainly aboriginal, students to studying at the university. Her upper-level rhetoric course, “Composing Winnipeg: Rhetorics of/and the City,” deals with themes central to the interests of the Institute: diversity, mobilities, and the tenacity of a localized “sense of place” that thrives at the same time as it adjusts to the global flow of people and things.

Her central research interest is in urban rhetorics, which aims at developing the language of relationship and revealing complex relational networks—revealing the writing self in social and material contexts, amidst a spinning web of relational ties. Her interest in language, identity, and community informs all of her mostly collaborative research projects, such as studies that take up questions about how digital media affects our scholarly and cultural practices; an editing project that links McLuhan to contemporary communications theory and practice; a study of local responses to the CMHR; and an alliance-biulding project to support women transitioning from prison.

She is enjoying the rich research potential of involvement with CLASS.
