Casey Maugh, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor, Department of Communication Studies

I believe deeply in my work as a rhetorical critic. Rhetorical criticism allows me to engage in messages throughout our society in order to illuminate injustices and inequities related to civic life. My strong belief that citizens should be engaged in the world around them has allowed me to research varied subjects all the while critically reading texts toward the end of civic engagement. In order to accomplish this goal, I utilize the fields of public memory, materiality, and visual rhetoric as foundations for my work on race, globalization, and postmodernity.
