David Beard


David Beard is an assistant professor of rhetoric in the Department of Writing Studies at the University of Minnesota Duluth. He researches the history, theory and pedagogy of rhetoric as an interdisciplinary formation. His work draws upon traditions in composition, speech-communication and cultural studies to articulate the history and the theoretical boundaries of "rhetorical studies" across written, oral and media communication. He has published in journals like the International Journal of Listening, Archival Science, Philosophy and Rhetoric, Southern Journal of Communication, and Enculturation, among other venues. Additionally, he has placed essays in What We Are Becoming: Developments in Undergraduate Writing Majors (USUP), Engaging Audience: Writing in an Age of New Literacies (NCTE), Coming of Age: The Advanced Writing Curriculum (Boynton/Cook) and the SAGE Handbook of Rhetorical Studies. With Richard Enos, he edited Advances in the History of Rhetoric (Parlor Press).
