About

Carolyn Block's research focuses on critical theory, media and cultural studies, and the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality in constructions of humans and animals. Currently she is examining how media texts construct wildness as an affect and how they represent owning wildness. Carolyn's teaching experience includes public speaking, introduction to human communication, and television and culture. She is a self-proclaimed dog lover and has done extensive work examining the relationship between people and their pets. In her free time, Carolyn enjoys running and playing with her two dogs Cocoa and DeeBowe.
