Jaqueline Mcleod Rogers

Jaqueline McLeod Rogers is a mom of two young adult daughters. She received a PhD for studying fiction by women and has worked full time as a professor with an interest in writing and women’s experiences. She is currently serving as Chair in the Department of Rhetoric, Writing and Communications at The University of Winnipeg.

From the perspectives of teacher / writer / scholar, she has a longstanding interest in the reflective, educative, and revelatory nature of personal writing. Does writing a parenting blog necessitate presenting news about close relations and relationships? What is frank and fair and what constitutes stepping over the line in talking about others? What are dangers of unsanctioned digital talk? Are there measures or flexible standards to guide how much to reveal about self and others, and how do these questions play out for bloggers with an online presence?
