Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Dr. Frey engages in applied communication research (specifically, communication activism for social justice research and pedagogy, communication and community studies, and group communication) using both qualitative and quantitative research methods to (a) understand how participation in collective communicative practices, especially by those who are underresourced and marginalized, affects people’s lives; and (b) promote an original, unique perspective of communication scholarship (communication activism for social justice) that argues for the use of communication theories, methods, and applied practices by researchers to intervene and by educators to teach students how to intervene into unjust discourses to promote social justice, and to document their practices, processes, and products.
