BATON ROUGE – The LSU Department of Communication Studies welcomes Dale Hample of
the University of Maryland for “Taking Conflict Personally: What Does it Matter if
You Can’t Quit Doing What You Always Do?” The talk will take place on Wednesday, April
23, at 11:30 a.m. in Coates 228.
Hample is an American argumentation and rhetorical scholar and associate professor
at the University of Maryland. He has published numerous peer-reviewed journal articles,
book chapters, and written one book and edited another. He is the former editor of
Argumentation and Advocacy.
After receiving a Ph.D. at the University of Illinois in 1975, he taught at Western
Illinois University until 2007, when he took a teaching position at Maryland. Some
of his major accomplishments include developing measures for the ways in which people
edit arguments (cognitive editorial standards), discussing how people produce argumentative
discourse (inventional capacity), and how they view arguments (argument frames and
taking conflict personally). He is most famous for his series of studies on taking
conflict personally, which is a multidimensional construct. Currently, he has three
studies that are in press in 2014 including arguing about public and personal topics
in Communication Yearbook, arguing in the International Encyclopedia of Interpersonal
Communication and “Imagined interactions and conflict escalation in marital relationships”
with James Honeycutt, Shaughan Keaton and Laura Hatcher on the influence of communication
in physiology and health.
