Allen’s book, Our Declaration: A Reading of the Declaration of Independence in Defense of Equality, is the 2016 Composition Common Read text.

Students in 21 sections of Composition and in some literature courses are using the book in their coursework this semester.  Incoming freshmen in UT’s  students in UT’s Summer Bridge Program read the book earlier this year.
