Marion Wolfe

PhD Student


Marion Wolfe is a PhD candidate specializing in rhetoric, composition and literacy. Her doctoral research is in the area of women's rhetorical history and focuses on a series of textbooks published by Protestant women's foreign missionary societies in the early twentieth century. Her research reveals how these study texts constructed a rhetorical situation and a feminist Christian worldview for their white, American women readers.

Marion has taught first-year writing, second-year writing and digital media composition at Ohio State. She has also served as a WPA for the first-year writing program, as a graduate administrative associate for the RCL program, and as a facilitator for the UCAT summer teaching orientation.
