Writing/Research

Description
My academic interests involve understanding, analyzing, and interpreting the rhetoric of traditionally marginalized, disenfranchised, and subjugated populations. As indicated in my curriculum vitae, I took a wide range of courses both at Howard University and at the University of Maryland that have enhanced my grounding in Intercultural Communication and Rhetoric. These interests led to my first publication entitled “Bridging the gap: African and African-American communication at historically Black colleges and universities.” I have recently begun to incorporate ideas of power and privilege into the essence of my research agenda. Through close readings of authors like Michel Foucault and Robert Greene, my research on marginalization, race relations, and the various forms of disenfranchisement are sure to be bolstered. I am currently using Hip-Hop culture as a “vocabulary” to discuss how race and power are currently being meted. This can be seen through my dissertation work which I am attempting to move through the publication process. My chapter “DeadPrez: Ghetto Hoodlums or ghettoGEEKS” is due out later this year on Cambria Press as a part of an edited book.
