Dara Rossman Regaignon

Dara Rossman Regaignon is an associate professor of English at New York University. She has published widely in rhetoric and writing studies as well as on the literature and culture of 19th-century Britain. Her book Writing Program Administration at Small Liberal Arts Colleges (co-authored with Jill M. Gladstein; Parlor Press, 2012) was the first empirical study of writing programs at small private liberal arts colleges, combining historical and rhetorical analysis with survey and focus group data. Writing Maternity: Medicine, Anxiety, Rhetoric, and Genre (Ohio State UP, 2021) offers a literary-rhetorical history of maternal anxiety as a cultural formation, as well as the first study of child-rearing advice literature as a distinct genre. Her current research is on race and vulnerability in women’s rights rhetoric since Mary Wollstonecraft.
