Dr. Patty Wilde discusses her in-progress manuscript, "Winning Our Wonder: Rhetorical Re/Constructions of Women in the American Civil War," in which she interrogates the powerful relationships between rhetoric, materiality, public memory, and the web.

Dr. Wilde is an associate professor of English and director of composition at Washington State University's Tri-Cities campus.  Her scholarly pursuits focus on feminist rhetorics, specifically as they concern history, historiography, and public memory; rhetorics of the American Civil War; histories of rhetoric and composition; archival research; and composition studies, with a focus on access-oriented teaching and dual enrollment programs.

Wichita Falls Museum of Art

String—clothing is made from string, whether the source is flora or fauna (or bugs!). Adding depth and consistency to your world as a writer means paying attention to how clothing production fits in your culture. You can’t have gold lamé dresses if you don’t have mining, mountains, and metal smiths! Join Jonna Hayden as she takes you on a 40-thousand year journey through the beginnings of Dress and how it manifests in our real and created worlds.
