My dissertation is situated in the speculative—that rhetorical domain of human affairs concerned with conditions we cannot entirely predict or control. Specifically, my research investigates the polarization and unease many of us feel as we imagine a world in which humans are no longer in the driver’s seat.

To pursue this line of inquiry, I draw from Kenneth Burke’s frames of acceptance and rejection.
