David Stock

Associate Professor

4106 JFSB - Brigham Young University


I'm an associate professor of writing and rhetoric at BYU. I received BA and MA degrees in English from BYU and a PhD in Composition and Rhetoric from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I co-founded and co-directed BYU's Research and Writing Center (2013-2020). I currently coordinate the English department's Professional Writing and Rhetoric minor.

Research Interests

My disciplinary home is writing and rhetoric studies, with interests in rhetorical education, writing development, and research methods. My historical scholarship explores sites and figures of rhetorical education that advance disciplinary histories of writing and communication. My qualitative research, often pursued in collaboration with students, explores how people develop as writers and how to teach writing effectively.

Teaching Interests

My teaching reflects commitments to collaborative learning and civic engagement. I design courses with ample opportunities for students to develop as writers by practicing different kinds of writing, sharing and discussing their writing with each other, revising their writing, and reflecting on their learning. I enjoy teaching general education writing courses, courses in the English department's Professional Writing and Communication track, and courses in the Professional Writing and Rhetoric Minor.
