Keith Dorwick, Professor of English at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and editor of the online journal Technoculture, is interested in the issues raised by queer studies; drama; children's literature and media; and rhetoric. These appear as plays in various venues; video/audio installations; and paintings and other 2D work. In addition, he publishes critical articles and reviews in journals such as Computers and Composition, The Journal of Bisexuality, CCCC Online, Harlot and as book chapters in edited collections. His latest article, “Change in Bodies: Documenting Female to Male Gender Transition Through T-Diaries in YouTube,” will appear in Liminalities later this year. His media works are performed at galleries and conferences across the country. Find more information about Dr. Dorwick on his website.
