Angel Evans is a third-year PhD student in the Writing, Rhetoric, and Literacy program. She's interested in how culturally-relevant language practices function as modes of empowerment and healing, particularly for marginalized communities. Her work also centers global and public writing contexts. Angel is a 2022 recipient of the CCCC Scholars for the Dream award and the 2023 Excellence in Teaching by a First-Year GTA award at Ohio State. She has served as a writing consultant at the Center for the Study of Teaching and Writing (2022-2023), where she currently serves as an Assistant Coordinator (2023-2024).
Prior to graduate study, Angel’s work aligned with three primary areas: non-profit education, media/grant-writing and community engagement. Her research and teaching are informed by this work. She hopes to equip students of all backgrounds with language tools that enrich their professional and lived experience.
