Wesleyan Communication Association/Lambda Pi Eta Guest Lecture: Dennis Mumby
Time: 1:00pm
Location: Virtual via Zoom

Dennis Mumby, the Cary C. Boshamer Distinguished Professor of Communication at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will deliver this year's Wesleyan Communication Association/Lambda Pi Eta Lecture. 

His lecture is titled, "Gigging and Branding: A Critical Communication Perspective on Contemporary Work."

Mumby's research focuses on the relationships among discourse, power, and organizing. He is particularly interested in processes of control and resistance, and the ways in which this dialectic is discursively produced, maintained, and transformed.  Relatedly, he is interested in exploring the relationship between gender and identity, and examining how processes of organizational control and resistance are tied to gendered organizational identities.  

Mumby's text book is used in NWU's organizational communication class. 

His lecture will be held via a Zoom webinar at:
