Jennifer Seibel Trainor is the author of several articles on race, whiteness, and literacy. Her book, Rethinking Racism: Emotion, Persuasion, and Literacy Education in an All-White Suburban High School (SIUP 2008) won the MLA’s Mina Shaughnessy Prize for scholarship in composition. She is currently working on an article that connects her previous work on emotion with students’ engagement with academic literacies and with the challenge of transfer in writing classrooms. She teaches undergraduate writing courses and graduate courses on literacy, critical pedagogy, and composition pedagogy.
