Dara Rossman Regaignon is an associate professor in the Department of English, where she teaches nineteenth-century British literature and culture as well as rhetoric and writing studies. Her first book, Writing Program Administration at Small Liberal Arts Colleges (Parlor Press, 2012, co-authored with Jill M. Gladstein), is the first empirical study of writing programs at 100 small liberal arts colleges. Her second book, Writing Maternity: Medicine, Anxiety, Rhetoric, and Genre (Ohio State UP, 2021), historicizes the anxious affects of middle-class motherhood and offers a literary-rhetorical history of maternal anxiety as a cultural formation. She has also published on writing fellows programs, writing pedagogy, and children's literature. Regaignon is currently at work on Vulnerable Rhetorics, a study of how elite women's claims of gendered, classed, and racialized vulnerability underwrote and justified imperial expansion in the late nineteenth-century British Empire.
