About Me.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm Dr. Amanda Sevilla, and I currently work as a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Pittsburgh. My academic specializations allow me to work in Rhetorical Theory, Media Ecology, Rhetoric of Technology, Ethics & Crisis Communication in the Public Sphere, Philosophy of Communication, Writing Theory, Sociolinguistics, Pragmatics, and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). I am grateful that I have opportunities to work within all of these academic topics in my current role! My first year at Pitt has been an amazing experience. Now in my second year, I am continuing my work with wonderful students and innovative faculty in the Department of English. I have included a link to my CV below.
