Peter Goggin is associate professor of English in the Rhetoric, Composition, & Linguistics program at Arizona State University. Much of his work focuses on theories of literacy. He is particularly interested in how practices and discourses of literacy pedagogy, research, and scholarship are socially and ideologically designed, situated, and developed. This work is most fully explored in Professing Literacy in Composition Studies (Hampton Press, 2008). His interests also include research on environmental rhetoric and sustainability. Recent work in this area includes "Sustainable Development: Thinking Globally and Acting Locally in the Writing Classroom," co-authored with Zach Waggoner (Composition Studies, 2005), and research on sustainability and environmental remediation in Bermuda. His edited collection, Rhetorics, Literacies, and Narratives of Sustainability, is forthcoming from Routledge/Taylor Francis. He teaches graduate courses in literacy theory and environmental rhetoric, and first-year writing in a Learning Communities project on Sustainability in collaboration with faculty in the geographical sciences. In addition to these interests, he is the founder and co-director of the annual Western States Rhetoric and Literacy Conference which is now in its twelfth year.
