About The Creators

Rachel Busse

Rachel is a second-year graduate student in English at the University of St. Thomas. She primarily studies modernist literature with a cultural and historical studies approach; Rachel is currently working on a project about Martha Gellhorn’s 1930s writings on war and economic injustice. She is riveted by the language that permeates our everyday lives: t-shirts, lawn signs, buttons on backpacks and jackets, and of course the words constantly scrolling across our many screens.  It was this interest which led to dreaming up this project. Rachel currently lives in St. Paul, Minnesota. She can be reached by email at rachelbusse@stthomas.edu
