Amy J. Lueck is Assistant Professor of English at Santa Clara University, where her research and teaching focus on histories of rhetorical instruction and practice, women’s rhetorics, feminist historiography, and public memory. Her book, A Shared History: Writing in the High School, College, and University, 1856-1886 (SIU Press 2020), brings together several of these research threads, interrogating the ostensible high school-college divide and the role it has played in shaping writing instruction in the US. headshot

Articles drawn from this body of research have appeared in Rhetoric Review, Ohio Valley History, Composition Studies, and Atlantic Monthly. Her other historical and pedagogical research has appeared or is forthcoming in journals such as College English, Peitho, Pedagogy, Kairos, and others, as well as in several edited collections. 

Lueck received her doctorate in Rhetoric and Composition at University of Louisville, where she was the recipient of the Guy Stevenson for Excellence in Graduate Studies, the University’s highest award for graduate students. She was also recent recipient of the K. Patricia Cross Future Leaders Award from the AAC&U.
