Dale Hample is an American argumentation and rhetorical scholar, associate Professor at the University of Maryland . He has published many peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, and written one book and edited another.
After receiving a PhD 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 currently the editor of Argumentation and Advocacy, and editor of the Issues Forum of Communication Monographs, and is on the editorial boards for ten other journals in his subject.
