My Header


My name is Courtney Patrick and I am currently a PhD student of Rhetoric and Composition at Texas Woman’s University.  I enjoy teaching freshman composition courses and in 2010 I was selected for the J. Dean Bishop teaching award by my peers. In April of 2012 I was a co-chair for the Federation Rhetoric Symposium held at TWU.  My academic interests include studies in critical thinking and composition, 20th Century British Literature, disability rhetoric, and feminism rhetoric.

I would like to thank Dr. Russell Greer for his wonderful support with this paper from beginning to end and for being an excellent advisor, teacher, and inspiration to me during my time at TWU.  I would also like to give a special thanks to Dr. Catherine Dutton for her help and guidance in creating a web space for this essay.
