Bio:

Eric House approaches the study of rhetoric and writing as a means to map out and understand cultural production and processes of identification. His current research examines how Black rhetoric remixes perceptions of writing and intervenes in the politics of representation. Specifically, he is interested in how the composing practices from figures in Black rhetorical tradition such as the hip-hop DJ might transform composition theory and pedagogy. His work places Black rhetoric and writing in conversation with scholarship in writing studies, rhetoric, literacy studies, linguistics, and cultural studies.
 
Eric is invested in both teaching and research practices that address systemic inequities by centering on and theorizing through experiences often marginalized in academic spaces, and both his teaching and research are informed by conversations in Black Feminism & Critical Race Theory.
