Daryl Dance


Visiting Assistant Professor

I have always been fascinated by the complexity of writing, language, and communication. That is perhaps why I chose to enter into the field of Composition and Rhetoric. In fact, my dissertation entitled Speaking for Others: Understanding "Students' Right to Their Own Language" through an Alternate Frame​ explores the writing and creation of "Students' Right to Their Own Language," the rhetorical ways in which the Conference on College Composition and Communication speaks for and about groups of people through this document, and how the framers of the document address linguistic discrimination and prejudice.

My research and teaching interests include the pedagogy of writing, African American rhetoric and literature, and service learning. I have published in ​JAC: A Journal of Rhetoric, Culture, and Politics and The Zora Neale Hurston Forum. ​I am currently doing research on theories of writing among African American authors.
