Associate Professor Steve Lamos (PhD 2004, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) studies the history and evolution of writing instruction within the U.S. academy.
Lamos’ first book, In the Interests of Opportunity: Race, Racism, and University Writing Instruction in the Post-Civil Rights Era (Pittsburgh UP, forthcoming 2011) analyzes issues of race and racism within the history of “basic writing” instruction. His current work examines historical and contemporary labor issues relevant to non-tenure-track college and university writing teachers. He has also published articles in College Composition and Communication, College English, and the Journal of Basic Writing, and has a forthcoming chapter in the volume New Directions in Writing Research (SIUP, 2011).
Lamos also serves as an Associate Director of the Program for Writing and Rhetoric (PWR), where he teaches a range of undergraduate and graduate courses and helps administer several key program components, including the Writing Center.
