Overview

  • Marcos J. Del Hierro is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of New Hampshire. He received his BA in English from Baylor University in 2006, his MA in English and American Literature from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2009, and his Ph.D. in English from Texas A&M University in 2014. His research focuses on intersections in Rhetoric and Composition, Race, Embodiment, and Technology. He is particularly interested in how Black, Latina/o, and Indigenous cultural traditions influence the development and use of hiphop rhetorics and technologies. His essay, “Fighting the Academy One Nopal at a Time,” appeared in El Mundo Zurdo: Selected Works from the Meetings of The Society for the Study of Gloria Anzaldúa in 2012. As a member of the Calmécac Collective, he co-authored the performance piece, “The Calmécac Collective, or, How to Survive the Academic Industrial Complex through Radical Indigenous Practices” in El Mundo Zurdo: Selected Works from the Meetings of The Society for the Study of Gloria Anzaldúa in 2013. In addition to his publications, Marcos has won several awards, including the Charles Gordonne Award for Creative Nonfiction (2011); the National Book Award BookUpTX Fellowship (2012); the Chairs’ Memorial Scholarship from the Conference on College Composition and Communication (2013); and the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education (AAHHE) Faculty Fellowship (2015). He is currently working on his first monograph project, Homegrown Critique Through the Rhetoric(s) of Hiphop, which theorizes the “Art of Makin’ Do” as a rhetorical tactic that looks at discarded knowledges, materials, and technologies as always/already reimaginable, reusable, and recyclable.
