I'm Katie Waddell. I am a professor of English at Florida SouthWestern State College. I received my PhD from the University of Kentucky in 2018 and my MA from the University of South Florida in 2013. My research focuses on queer studies, women's writing, critical race theory, and pedagogy. These scholarly influences impact how I teach composition and literature at the college. Above all, I seek to collaborate with my students and colleagues in generating a radically inclusive learning environment.
