Carly Schnitzler is a Ph.D. candidate, teaching fellow, and community organizer at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill studying digital rhetoric and creative computation. Her dissertation project, "Generations: Creative Computation, Community, and the Rhetorical Canon," is an investigation of how the rhetorics and communities of engagement within and around computer-generated texts can renew the classical rhetorical canon, while probing and progressing the role of computers in socially-engaged creative praxis. Carly’s other research and writing explores related themes of data ethics, authorship, and digital infrastructures in creative computing. She also founded and co-organizes If, Then: Technology and Poetics, a community working group and event series promoting inclusivity and skills-building in creative computation for artists, scholars, and teachers.
