Megan Morrissey Ph.D.
Dr. Megan Morrissey joined the faculty of UNT in 2013 after completing her Ph.D. In Communication Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. Dr. Morrissey’s research interests exist at the intersection of race, gender, sexuality, and citizenship. Her scholarship and teaching uses a critical and rhetorical lens to theorize, understand, and deconstruct the ways identity categories, social hierarchies, and politics are discursively constructed and materially meaningful in people’s lives. She has published essays on Orange is the New Black, Blacktavism, the marriage equality movement, and migrants’ struggles to access citizenship rights in the United States. Some of the classes that Dr. Morrissey has taught at UNT include COMM 4540: Communication Theories of Sexuality, COMM 4840: Latino Rhetorics, COMM 3620: Intercultural Communication, and COMM 4240: Rhetoric and popular Culture.
