Biography

Grant Boswell’s training is in rhetoric, linguistics, and literature. His interests are in rhetoric generally, especially rhetorical theory and the history of rhetoric. His specific research interests focus primarily on rhetoric in the seventeenth century, including such topics as rhetoric and religious disputes, rhetoric and Christian meditation, rhetoric and education, and rhetoric and psychology. Moreover, he maintains an avid interest in literary theory, especially as it is influenced by hermeneutic philosophy, and is therefore interested in the relationship between rhetoric and interpretation. In his time at BYU he has taught courses in composition, language, rhetoric, and theory. His publications include articles on language and rhetoric in seventeenth-century contexts, past and present pedagogical practices, and rhetoric and postmodemity. He is currently the composition coordinator. Professor Boswell lives in Provo with his wife and three children.
