bonnie lenore kyburz teaches writing and rhetoric at Utah Valley University. A long time Sundance volunteer, film lover, studying actor, and screenwriter, bonnie makes short digital films -- documentaries and expermental pieces that hope to resonate as entertaining, provocative arguments, especially in/for an evolving linguistic academic scene. bonnie’s most recent film, status update wonders the ubiquity of textual status updates when video seems an increasingly reasonable option. Using footage from colleagues who answered her call to generate a “video status update” along with text and audio that articulates the inqiry and its tentative answers, the project is a form of what kyburz calls “fantasy-ethnography” and appears in Enculturation: A Journal of Rhetoric, Writing, and Culture. bonnie’s work also appears in Composition Studies, College English, and Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy. She is currently working on her book, Beyond Words: Film-Composition’s ‘Invisible Galleries’.
