Biography

Jen England is an assistant professor in the English Department and the current faculty director of the Women’s Resource Center. She teaches courses primarily in the Professional Writing and Rhetoric concentration as well as first-year writing and women’s studies. Jen has a range of teaching and research interests, including game studies; digital media and technologies; mental health and illness rhetorics; environmental and sustainability rhetorics; and feminist advocacy.

In her research she is particularly interested in exploring how representation and identity is created, functions, and circulates in different rhetorical spaces. She has published in journals such as Computers and Composition Online, Reflections: A Journal of Community-Engaged Writing and Rhetoric, and Girlhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal, as well as in edited collections. Before coming to Hamline in 2016, Jen earned her BSJ in Magazine Journalism at Ohio University (2009), MA in English with a concentration in Writing and Rhetoric at the University of Dayton (2011), and PhD in Rhetoric and Professional Communication at New Mexico State University (2016).

Teaching Style

“We do so much writing and reading (and listening) on a daily basis, but often this work isn’t considered “academic enough.” As an instructor, I encourage students to re-see the familiar and what “counts” as writing. I want students to use their different life experiences/literacies to enter scholarly conversations and, even more importantly, to break down boundaries between academic, professional, and public communication. My goal is for students to leave my classes more critically, culturally, and ethically aware of how they consume, produce, and circulate information in a variety of contexts.”
