I’m Eric Detweiler, Assistant Professor of Rhetoric & Composition in Middle Tennessee State University’s Department of English. I recently earned a PhD in English with a specialization in rhetoric and writing from The University of Texas at Austin. My primary research project focuses on the intersections of rhetoric and writing pedagogy, classical and contemporary rhetorical theory, and rhetorical ethics. In addition, I teach and study digital rhetoric and multimodal composition, especially as they relate to sound studies and sonic rhetorics.
- I am an Associate Professor of Writing and Rhetoric at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas.
- St. Edward’s has had a standalone Writing major since 1987, and I teach a variety of rhetorical theory and criticism courses in the major, as well as writing courses in the general-education core, legal writing, editing, and Honors Thesis Prep.
- I also direct the university’s Writing Center.
- Before I went back to school to earn my MA and PhD, I practiced law in California and in Texas.

I’m an assistant professor of Writing and Rhetoric at the University of Houston-Clear Lake in Houston, Texas, Currently, I teach courses in basic and advanced writing, and graduate classes in rhetorical studies at TDCJ Ramsey Unit. I’ve also taught graduate courses in rhetorical theory, composition pedagogy, and creative writing elsewhere. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Ph.D. in English in 2011, with concentrations in rhetoric and composition, women’s studies, and medieval studies. These interests now guide me in writing about contemporary issues and contexts of coloniality, especially those affecting Latinxs. My primary areas of interest are race, gender, disability, embodied rhetorics and rhetorics of embodiment, and inclusive and empowering pedagogies.
