Biography

Romeo García (PhD, Composition and Cultural Rhetoric, Syracuse University) is Assistant Professor of Writing and Rhetoric Studies at the University of Utah. He researches the relationship between coloniality (as a logic of management and control and system of Ideas and ends) and literacies and rhetorics, how that relationship both disseminates at the local-regional level and contributes to the strenghtening of the U.S. as one model of hegemony vying for power on the modern/colonial world stage, and the effects it has on all communities. García's research appears in College Composition and CommunicationRhetoric Society Quarterly, Across the Disciplines,The Writing Center JournalCommunity Literacy Journal, and constellations. He is co-editor (with Damián Baca) of Rhetorics Elsewhere and Otherwise, winner of the 2020 Conference on College Composition & Communication Outstanding Book Award (Edited Collection). His current interests include the decolonial research paradigm's impact on composition and rhetorical studies; archival research; the cultural imaginary of border(ed)landers of South Texas; and community building in and outside of academia.
