Dr. Jeremy Larance is the Assistant Provost for Academic Innovation & Strategic Planning at West Liberty University. He was one of the university’s first instructors to teach a corequisite composition course, and, as Chair of the Department of Humanities from 2014-2018, he played an instrumental role in developing the corequisite composition program. During that time, due to various logistical and budgetary issues, WLU's corequisite program went through over six iterations, each of which proved to be as successful as the last. He has been a member of the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission’s Corequisite Task Force since 2015, and he has served as a facilitator and content expert for multiple Complete College America sponsored events. As Assistant Provost, he now coordinates multiple university-wide initiatives including 15-to-Finish, meta-majors, math pathways, and continued corequisite support in both composition and math. One of his major accomplishments was helping the math program create new courses (e.g. Algebra with Applications) that better meet the needs of students in disciplines that do not require traditional College Algebra.

***********************

Dr. Larance completed his doctorate in English Literature at the University of Tulsa. His dissertation, “Howzat…Cricket or Not?: The Language and Literature of Cricket and the English Gentleman Mythos,” explores the ways in which images of the amateur cricketer propagated the gentleman ideal in British culture from the early 1700s until the early twentieth century. Prior to pursuing his doctorate, he earned his bachelor’s degree in English from the University of the South (Sewanee) and his master’s degree in English Literature from Louisiana Tech University. Before assuming administrative duties at West Liberty University, he served as the Non-Fiction Editor of _Aethlon: The Journal of Sport Literature_, and still serves on the journal’s Editorial Board. In recent years, he has turned his scholarly attention towards the skies, exploring the ways in which images of superheroes both reflect and influence America's perceptions of masculinity, heroism, sexuality, and nationalism. He has published articles on comics studies, cricket-literature, the A. J. Raffles stories, and the works of Alan Moore.

In his spare time, Dr. Larance enjoys reading (of course), drinking Sumatra coffee, fishing, and collecting vintage poker books.
