Guest Lecture by Dr. Scharp: How Communication Addresses Inequity & Marginalization
We are so excited to have Dr. Kristina Scharp (Associate Professor of Communication and Director of the Family Communication and Relationships Lab at the University of Washington) joining us on campus on Thursday, May 12th, 2022 from 4:10-5:00PM in ATL (Bldg. 7, Room 02).
Her talk is titled: "How Communication Processes Address Inequity and Marginalization: The Importance of Remaking, Resistance, and Resilience."
During this talk, Dr. Scharp will discuss how the communicative processes of remaking, resistance, and resilience can help people better disrupt and manage the inequities people experience and resulting marginalization with which they must cope.
Based on her research about family estrangement, complicated health diagnoses, and disenfranchised college students, she also illustrates how communication scholarship can inform a new theory, inspire a new research method, and translate to the public.
We would love to have you all join us in welcoming Dr. Scharp to campus and know this will be an important conversation you don't want to miss!
This event is sponsored by: the College of Liberal Arts, the Communication Studies Department, the Psychology Department, and the Sociology Department.
