About C. Kyle Rudick

I am critical communication scholar who studies how power, privilege, and oppression are constructed and marshaled in everyday talk. My research and teaching interests are predicated upon my strong belief that contemporary society is rife with inequalities and that it is my (your, our) ethical duty to imagine and pursue a life of freedom, equality, and harmony. My primary mode of activism is through research and teaching, where I encourage ideas that are counter to oppressive logics such as classism, racism, and sexism (to name a few). Please send me a message if you would like to discuss my work further.


Present Associate Professor, Communication and Media, University of Northern Iowa Department of Communication and Media
