Faculty Joshua Frye, Communication Permalink
Joshua Frye, Associate Professor of Communication, recently published a peer-reviewed academic journal article in the “Journal of Social Justice.” The article, entitled, “Re-conceptualizing the Global Fair Trade Movement” examines the fair trade movement using structuration theory and inductive rhetorical analysis.
