I’ll be on Wisconsin Public Radio’s Week In Review this morning at 0800. I will be discussing the issues of the week with Kelly Wilz. Ms. Wilz is relatively new to the show and it will be my first time speaking with her. Here’s a little about her:
Kelly Wilz , Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Communication/Theatre Arts and Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Marshfield/Wood County. Her research and teaching explore the intersections of education, media literacy, gender, politics, democracy, and popular culture. The focus of her primary research is on rhetorical constructions of gender, violence, and dissent within the context of U.S. war culture and American politics. Related topics of interest include how dehumanizing and demonizing rhetoric extend beyond war to broader patterns of social violence based on intersectional discourses of race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and other identity markers. Kelly’s academic publications have appeared in multiple edited collections and top-tier journals such as Rhetoric & Public Affairs and the Global Media Journal.
