Dr. Brent Kice is an Associate Professor of Communication Studies and basic course director at Frostburg State University. His research explores popular media (such as television commercials, websites, and gaming) and dictator rhetoric (specifically, Fidel Castro) to discern various communicative strategies of constructing communal crusades in the eyes of message consumers. In addition, he researches pedagogical techniques for the modern college classroom. He is the project leader for the department's grant-funded redesign of its basic course in collaboration with the National Center for Academic Transformation. He teaches courses on the First Amendment, ethics and social responsibility, argumentation, rhetorical criticism, small group communication, and the department's basic course.
Dr. Kice has published articles in the POROI (Project on the Rhetoric of Inquiry) Journal, the Texas Speech Communication Journal Online, the Communication and Theatre Association of Minnesota Journal, and the Memphis Theological Seminary Journal. He also has a book chapter in Matthew Wysocki's (2013) Ctrl-Alt-Play: Essays on Control in Video Gaming, and two additional book chapters forthcoming in 2015.
