Raúl Sánchez

Associate Professor

My current research project examines decolonial theory’s potential impact on Composition and Rhetoric. In October 2017, at the Conference on Community Writing, I took part in a roundtable discussing my co-edited book, Decolonizing Rhetoric and Composition Studies: New Latinx Keywords for Theory and Pedagogy (Palgrave, 2016). Recent publications include that book, as well as Inside the Subject: A Theory of Identity for the Study of Writing (NCTE/CCCC Studies in Writing and Rhetoric, 2017) and—with Maria Rogal—“Codesigning for Development” (Routledge Handbook of Sustainable Design, 2018).

Nationally, I’m a member of the Conference on College Composition and Communication as well as the Cultural Rhetorics Consortium. I’m on the editorial board of Constellations: A Cultural Rhetorics Publishing Space, and I’ve served on the editorial board of my field’s flagship journal, College Composition and Communication. At UF, I’m an affiliate faculty member in the Center for Latin American Studies, and I’m a member of the United Faculty of Florida. I teach courses in argumentative writing, professional communication, and critical theory, and cultural studies.
