Dr. Lambke received her Ph.D. in English from Saint Louis University. She specializes in rhetoric and composition with particular interest in the intersections of technology and rhetoric. While she researches and composes in various modes, including multimodal and textual composition, her specialty is secondarily oral compositions. Such compositions are an intricate mix of speaking and writing afforded by 20th and 21st century technological innovation. She has published two audio essays: one on the recorded lectures of Fr. Walter J. Ong, S.J., and a second on the aural artifacts from the 2011 Egyptian Revolution. In addition to composition, Dr. Lambke teaches courses that combine literature, rhetoric, and technology.
