research overview

  • Over the past several years, Dr. Kratzke has adapted his training and scholarship in literary studies in engaging the field of Rhetoric/Composition. In particular, he studies the social practice of genre in various forms: cultural materials related to the nineteenth-century 'bicycle boom' and its aftermath, maps, and other technical forms of communication. He also considers materials from popular culture in terms of teaching writing (with an eye toward 'multimodality').
