Dr. Jenny Krichevsky
Dr. Jenny Krichevsky joined the Department of English at Fresno State in 2020. She holds a Ph.D. in Composition and Rhetoric from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Her research looks at the ways in which immigrant families transmit literacy and language values across space and time, through generations and geopolitical boundaries. Dr. Krichevsky’s current project looks at how this transmission of literacy and language happens from the particular literacy narrative perspectives of Jewish immigrant elders who have come from the former Soviet Union.
As an Assistant Professor in the Rhetoric and Writing Studies Program, she specializes in literacy studies, multilingual writing, language diversity, cultural rhetorics, Writing Across the Curriculum, and STEM Writing in the Disciplines. Her pedagogy is rooted in centering the questions and experiences students bring into the classroom, and supporting students in wherever and however they choose their writing trajectories to go.
In addition to teaching and research, Dr. Krichevsky coordinates Fresno State's Writing Across the Curriculum program, which supports faculty campuswide in the teaching of writing across all disciplines.
