About

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.
