""Out of Speech (LSU Press, 2018)

""Rhetoric and the Global Turn in Higher Education (Rhetoric, Politics and Society) (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018)
By Christopher Minnix

This book studies the role of rhetoric in the expansive movement for global higher education in U.S. colleges and universities. Drawing on an analysis of how discourses of security, economy, and ethics shape the rhetoric of global higher education, as well as that of its populist and nationalist critics, the author argues for an understanding of global higher education as a site of rhetorical conflict over visions of students as citizens.

""Day Kink (Unicorn Press, 2018)
By Tristan Allen Jih and Adam Vines

“Strap up your combat boots, lace up your girdle, and take ten diaphragmatic breaths before you draw back the tent-flap of this freaky burlesque show. To be kinky during the day is to be — in the healthy, Victorian sense of the word — queer. And these poems are nothing if not queer. Mosey slowly through Day Kink, three steps at a time. Savor, line by line, its lasciviousness. Maybe you’ll come out of it without any trauma or slime. Or maybe, like me, you won’t.” — Hastings Hensel, slouched-over drunk at the old grouper bar

""Birds and Other Creatures in Renaissance Literature: Shakespeare, Descartes, and Animal Studies (CRC Press, 2017)

Part of the cover of Chapman's "The Legal Epic." The Legal Epic: Paradise Lost and the Early Modern Law (University of Chicago Press, 2017)
By Alison Chapman

"Chapman makes a very strong case for Milton's intimate familiarity with English and Continental law; his commitment to a natural law position that insisted upon the fundamental connection among human law, right reason, and divine law; and the relevance of legal concepts to Paradise Lost. The Legal Epic will fundamentally change how we read Milton's poem." — Debora K. Shuger, University of California, Los Angeles

Part of the cover of Partners in Literacy. Partners in Literacy: A Writing Center Model for Civic Engagement (Rowman & Littlefield, 2016)
By Jaclyn M. Wells and Allen Brizee

"Part investigative study, part ethnography, part personal reflection, part theoretical analysis, and part critical narrative ... [Partners in Literacy] is a remarkably readable and deeply personal account of what it means and what it takes to engage in a research project whose primary foci are community outreach and civic engagement." — Michael Pemberton, Director, Writing Center, Georgia Southern University

Watercolor painting of a green and blue hummingbird.a lesson in smallness (The National Poetry Review Press, 2015)
By Lauren Slaughter

"a lesson in smallness is an invitation that builds word by shiveringly, perfectly placed word, cadence by subtle, breath-catching cadence into shifting vignettes, vistas, vision. Vastly imponderable, and also close, and cherished: nature and human nature and the nature of art, all at once in these moving poems. A book to read and read again." — Robin Behn

Painting of a woman's face. YOU. (Etruscan Press, 2015)
By Joseph Wood

"Wood’s poems and performances are … fragile, effulgent, violent, violet, toothsome, and trembling." — Abraham Smith, author of Hank and Only Jesus Could Icefish in Summer

Portion of the cover of McComiskey's "Dialectical Rhetoric" -- the name on a red/orange watercolor background. Dialectical Rhetoric (Utah State University Press, 2015)
By Bruce McComiskey

“What the author proposes here is not found anywhere else, and his development of a third dialectic — that is, an entirely new model for understanding dialectic — well, this is not mere appropriation; this is theory making.” — Frank Farmer, University of Kansas, author of After the Public Turn and Saying and Silence

Part of the cover of "According to Discretion."According to Discretion (Unicorn Press, 2015)
by Allen Jih and Adam Vines

“The language is so sharp and the description so precise, each poem unveils images that leave you with a kind of synesthesia. One sense stirs another until the world of the book becomes your own. You see things you didn’t know you’ve been wanting and waiting to see: Spanish Moss lashing dragonflies, an afternoon’s impersonal reverie. You cannot rest, nor should you.” — Erica Dawson, author of The Small Blades Hurt
