About: New account, who dis?
I go by "Kiki". I'm an assistant coach for UT Austin and a Ph.D. student studying rhetoric and political communication. I worked in legislative politics for 7 years (bill drafting, policy analysis, and policy advocacy), and I specialized in environmental and civil rights legislation in Colorado and across the Western U.S. I have one master's degree in public policy (environmental policy and law) and another in communication. I like learning new things, particularly through debate and deliberation.
Spiel: I've been in and out of the debate world since the year 2000 (#OldAF) and I do not feel like it's my place to tell you how to debate. Speed is fine. I flow on paper and I'm a sucker for a good line-by-line. Good internal links, impact calculus (where appropriate), and voters are sublime. Enough with this lazy rhyme... I lost a bet, I've paid my debt.
T: My only pet peeve is a lengthy topicality violation in lieu of a carefully crafted neg strategy.
K/Theory: Despite being a coach at UT Austin, most of my personal debate and coaching experience involves plan text case debates. That being said, I am fine with theory. My current academic/professional research focuses on social identity theory, collective action theory, punctuated equilibrium theory, rhetorical criticism, and protest spaces. I am quite schooled in classic social theory (dead white guys) but please do not assume I am familiar with the theory you are espousing. Clearly define your terms, links, and the alternative.
CPs/DAs: Anything goes. Please have a strong and specific link story. Generic blocks in college debate come off as lazy.
Etiquette/civility: Rude/condescending behavior will automatically result in a reduction of speaker points. Online public sphere incivility culture should not extend to in-person behavior.
CX: I flow it. I don't know what that says about me. ¯\_(ãƒ„)_/¯
Misc: I am experimenting with flowing on the computer this season because I am not a fossil quite yet. Please be patient with RFDs as they now take longer to render with a paper and electronic flow. You can generally expect me to render a decision within 10-15 minutes after the 2AR.
