Chalice is an Assistant Professor and the Program Coordinator of Eastern's Professional Writing and Written Communications Program. Her teaching and scholarship bridge professional writing, technical communication, and rhetoric/composition. Drawing on silence, genre, rhetorical listening and cultural rhetoric theories, her scholarship questions the cultural underpinnings of professional documents. Her current research project compares writers' strategies and hirers' expectations for the US resume and cover letter, with implications for teachers, scholars, and practitioners to understand and (ideally) disrupt hiring inequality.
