Amardo Rodriguez

Department of Communication and Rhetorical Studies

Amardo Rodriguez’s research and teaching interests revolve around three questions: (a) How can communication theory speak better to what being human means? (b) How can communication theory offer new vistas of what being human means? And (c) How can communication theory make for a world with less misery and suffering? 

He forwards an emergent understanding of communication that foregrounds moral, existential, and spiritual assumptions, and explores the potentiality of this emergent understanding of communication to expand our notions of democracy and community.
