Jacqueline Jones Royster
"Subverting Double Jeopardies: Continuities of Rhetorical Action by African-American Women Writers" Royster is the senior vice provost and executive dean of the Colleges of Arts and Sciences and professor of English at The Ohio State University. She has three complementary areas of interest in research: the rhetorical history of women of African descent, the development of literacy, and contexts and processes related to the teaching of writing. She has authored numerous articles and books that illustrate this confluence of concerns in both literacy studies and women's studies. In addition to her teaching, administrative and scholarly activities, Royster has been very active in English professional organizations. She has filled a variety of roles on committees, task forces and commissions, including serving as chair of the Conference on College Composition and Communication, chair of the executive committee on the Division on Teaching Writing of the Modern Language Association, and currently on the Writing Advisory Committee of the National Commission on Writing, established by the College Board. Such leadership roles are evident in the Columbus community as well. Royster serves on the advisory boards of the Columbus Literacy Council, the Ohioana Library Association and the Children's Hunger Alliance.
