Dr. Megan Morrissey's Latest Publication

Congratulations to Dr. Megan Morrissey for her latest publication entitled, "The Writing on the Wall: (New) Racism in U.S. Public Conversations about Race"! This piece will come out online in the beginning of October in the journal Communication Currents.

Dr. Morrissey describes the publication as "a 'translation' of an academic journal article that was published in Review of Communication earlier this year. The essay uses NPR's 'Race Card Wall' as a text to explore the ways everyday people talk about race in the United States. Specifically, the article discusses how even individuals who appear to resist racism, reinforce the logics of colorblindness in ways that perpetuate racist thinking."
