Wilfredo Alvarez, Ph.D.
- Associate Professor of Communication Arts
- 211 Faculty Center
- School of Arts & Sciences
Wilfredo Alvarez’s (he/him/his) teaching and research focus on communication issues related to social identity (i.e., race, ethnicity, social class, immigration, gender, sexual orientation, and ability status). Specifically, he is interested in how micro (the self and personal relationships), meso (groups and organizations) and macro-level (popular culture/mediated messages) communication practices (e.g., pervasive discourses of race, gender, and their intersections) are deployed institutionally to create, maintain, and resist systems of oppression, discrimination, and inequity in U.S. society.
He primarily teaches courses in intercultural communication, interpersonal communication, organizational communication, and communication, difference, and social justice.
