Dr. Perryman-Clark is Assistant Professor and Director of First-Year Writing, with specialties in
 English and Rhetoric and Writing Studies as well as 
African American Language and Pedagogy. Her forthcoming book (under contract with Peter Lang Publishing), Afrocentric Teacher-Research: Rethinking Appropriateness and Inclusion, is a qualitative empirically-based teacher-research study that examines the ways in which African American students and all students perform expository writing tasks using an Ebonics-based Rhetoric and Composition focused first-year writing curriculum. As such, her work focuses on creating culturally-relevant pedagogies and curricular designs to support all students' expository writing practices.
