Jill Holslin has been a lecturer in RWS since 2003 and is currently studying for her MFA in Art in the School of Art & Design at SDSU. As a visual artist working in contemporary photography in Mexico and the US, her classes focus on visual rhetoric and multimodal texts. Other research interests include photojournalistic images, media coverage of politics and protest, and the rhetoric of media types like conspiracy theory, clickbait, hate news, tabloids and junk science. As a fronteriza, she crosses the US-Mexico border constantly for life and work, and has lived in Tijuana, Baja California, since 2011. She regularly gives talks in Spanish (her second language) at universities in Mexico. This experience has given her a lot of insight into the writing processes of our student writers at San Diego State, many of whom speak and write in English as their second language. Holslin holds a Master of Arts in English from the University of California, San Diego. She has exhibited her photographs and videos in Mexico and Latin America, the United States and Europe, and her writing has been published in anthologies and art & cultural journals.
