Courtney Rivard, Ph.D. is the Director of the Digital Literacy and Communications (DLC) Lab and Teaching Assistant Professor in English and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

Her interdisciplinary work brings together Composition and Rhetoric, Digital Humanities, and Feminist Studies to study the rhetoric of history as it unfolds in the space of archives. By focusing on the intersection of digital protocols and the rhetoric of archival structures, such as categorization, indexing, and tagging practices, she interrogates how notions of race, gender, and national belonging are produced in and through archival spaces.
