Bio

Dr. Rodgrigues began his graduate studies in the U.S in 1991. He received a M.A. in mass communication and a Ph. D. in interpersonal and public communication from Bowling Green State University. His research and writing focuses on intercultural communication, rhetoric, popular culture and Asian-Indian identity. Five years working in the advertising industry in India convinced Dr. Rodrigues that there was much to learn about communication. He was right. Dr. Rodrigues grew up in Bombay (now Mumbai), India, immersed in Indian, British and American popular culture; hence, his interest in communication and popular culture. “As both an international student and immigrant in the U.S., I have been intrigued and fascinated by the literature on intercultural communication and, more specifically, issues surrounding the negotiation of minority identity. I am always hoping that I am capable of making these, and other communication topics, equally fascinating and captivating to my students.”
