Jonathan Hunt received a B.A. in English from Dartmouth
College and a Ph.D. in World Literature and Cultural Studies from
the University of California at Santa Cruz. Prior to his arrival at
USF in 2012, he was Associate Director the Program in Writing and
Rhetoric at Stanford University. At USF, he teaches RHET 110, 120,

In his research, Jonathan is most interested in "outlaw"
rhetoric: rhetoric that violates norms of decorum. He has
contributed to The New Dictionary of the History of Ideas
(Charles Scribner's Sons, 2004) and The World Is a
Text (Pearson/Prentice Hall, 2009). His most recent
publication is an article on rhetoric and swearing, entitled "From
Cacemphaton to Cher: Foul Language and Evidence in the Rhetorical
Tradition," which appeared in Relevant Rhetoric in 2012.
