Charles Carroll is Associate Director for Graduate Student Writing and Visiting Assistant Professor of History. In his role at Sheridan, he oversees the Writing Center and empowers graduate students to become better writers and teachers of writing. His pedagogical research is on the use of authentic writing assignments, antiracist writing pedagogies, and holistic support of dissertation writing. Trained as a historian of medieval France and the Mediterranean world, his historical research combines the histories of rhetoric, education, the body, and masculinities to consider how gendered discourses shaped the institutional identity of the Parisian schools and university in the 12th and 13th centuries. He teaches courses on writing pedagogy as well as the history of Paris, early and medieval Christian demonology, and the crusades.

He was recently named a co-recipient (with graduate proctor Britt Threatt) of the Council on College Composition and Communication's Emergent Researcher Award. His historical research was recently published in the journal Viator. A first-generation college student, he holds a B.A. in history and religious studies from Saint Michael's College, an M.A. in history from the University of Massachusetts Boston, and a Ph.D. in history from Brown University.
