Stacey Pigg was awarded with a Summer Stipend Award from the National Endowment for the Humanities for her project, Writing Unbound: Invention, Sociability, and Digitized Public Space. The NEH Summer Stipends program provides awards for individuals to pursue scholarly work in the humanities during the summer. Recipients typically produce scholarly articles, books, archaological site reports, translations, editions, or other scholarly tools in either traditional print or electronic formats.
Pigg theorizes everyday rhetorical practices and spaces and teaches courses in composition, rhetoric history and theory, civic engagement, and digital rhetorics. Her research has appeared in Rhetoric Society Quarterly, Computers and Composition, Present Tense: A Journal of Rhetoric in Society, and Museums and the Web, as well as the edited collections, RAW (reading and writing) New Media and Collaborative Approaches to the Digital in English Studies.
