Marcos J. Del Hierro
Marcos J. Del Hierro joined UNH in 2014 and is an Assistant Professor of English. His primary field is Rhetoric and Composition Studies, where he focuses on the intersections among race, culture, technology, and writing. His essay, “By the Time I Get to Arizona: Hiphop Responses to Arizona SB 1070” was published earlier this year in Indigenous Pop (U of Arizona Press).
He is currently working on his first book, Homegrown Critique Through Hiphop Rhetorics, which explores how hiphop communities produce rhetoric and writing practices that challenge oppression. The son of Mexican immigrants, Marcos is proud to be the first in his family to earn a Ph.D and often shares his experiences as a Mexican-American in higher education at conferences.
