I am interested in the dichotomy logos/pathos in the larger frame, which I have focused on the connection between cognition, reasoning and the senses . More specifically, I explore rhetorical theory in three branches: Aural Rhetoric, Visual Rhetoric, and Sequential Rhetoric, all centered on Cinema and Literature of the so-called “Culture of Anxiety,” alternatively termed as “Culture of Fear.”
Currently, I am re-shaping, extending, and broadening my previous research (PhD dissertation) to cognitive science explanations of human consciousness in cultural artifacts and narratives.
I have taught on rhetorical criticism, Academic Writing, and Communication for Academic and Business purposes.
