PHD GRADUATE STUDENT, DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNICATION
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.
