Dr. Perry studied History and Communication during his undergraduate studies at Baylor, and during his MA, also from Baylor, he studied Communication. His PhD from Georgia State University is in Communication with a focus on Rhetoric & Public Address. His research focuses on the intersection of text and image, specifically as that intersection relates to issues of race and African American identity. Through these issues, he explores the ways in which citizenship is defined at different points in American history, and how access to the public sphere changes for different groups. His current projects examine the means by which protest groups re-purpose images of racial violence in order to make persuasive appeals for change. His other research interests include the uses of the Frontier Myth in popular culture and public address, rhetorical strategies in public apologies, and the theories of pedagogy. In this coming year, he will teach World of Rhetoric I, II, and World Cultures IV.
