Hello! My name is Miranda McCreary (she/her/hers) and, though technically not born here, I consider Colorado home. I am thrilled to be pursuing a Ph.D. here at CSU where I have the opportunity to learn from brilliant scholars, teach transformative material in undergraduate courses, and be a part of the powerful ACT Human Rights Film Festival.

My research interests focus on intersections of media and rhetoric, particularly the rhetorical study and criticism of film and television media. In this research, I find feminist, queer, and critical/cultural theoretical lenses incredibly useful for better understanding both how these unique media forms function and the possible implications of this functioning for individual and collective existence.
