Margaret Black on herself: 

"I research the intersections of literacy, learning, race, and material conditions.

I'm interested in making sure basic writing students get a chance to come to college and that they get a fair shake once they're here. More than this, though, I'm interested in where, exactly, we can draw lines between discourse difference and error, what it is about non-standard writing practices that offends us so much, the tension between honoring multiple literacies and the material value of Standard American English, and why in the face of so much evidence to the contrary, we continue to link writing style to one's virtue and intelligence."
