Jen Buchan uses rhetorical, feminist, and media theory to think about intersections of technology and gender in popular discourse. In her current project, Buchan traces apocalyptic rhetoric about gender and technology in mythic representations of artificial intelligence. She also studies cultural logics underwriting epidemics of violence in both domestic abuse and mass shootings events. Buchan currently serves as a graduate assistant in the University Fellowships Office at Penn State. Her last name is pronounced BYOO-can, like Buchanan without the extra "an."
