Boromisza-Habashi, David Associate Professor


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Dr. Boromisza-Habashi studies public expression using theories and methodologies derived primarily from the Ethnography of Communication research tradition. He is interested in the ways speakers use locally available and meaningful discursive resources to communicate in public and to evaluate the public expression of others. His primary interest is how speakers assign various kinds of value to speech, and what role value has to play in the global circulation of discursive units, particularly speech genres. His current research focuses on the value of the Anglo-American speech genre known as public speaking and its presence in non-Anglo social contexts.
