Roz’s primary aim as a researcher and instructor is to engage questions about the intersections and influences between digital technology, language, and gender. She is also curious about the broader impacts of digital technology and the social movements that develop in response. Her research centers around subjects like gender and the language of the Supreme Court, feminist hacktivism and cyberfeminism, and ethical practices of text mining as a methodology.
