Dr. Kice's research focuses on the rhetorical strategies used by dictators to maintain systematic holds on people. Currently, he is examining the public address of Fidel Castro. Aside from dictators, he is also interested in the identification strategies used in web design and advertising aimed at rhetorically constructing social movements in the eyes of consumers. He teaches courses on the First Amendment, ethics and social responsibility, argumentation, rhetorical criticism, small group communication, and the department's hybrid intro course.
In addition, he was the lead writer for a $40,000 grant in collaboration with the National Center for Academic Transformation to redesign the department's hybrid intro course. Dr. Kice and his department colleagues presented their redesign experiences at the 2012 Eastern Communication Association conference in Cambridge, MA.
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 titled "Perceptions of Control: Open World Formats v. Online Multiplayer First Person Shooters" in Ctrl-Alt-Play: Essays on Control in Video Gaming, edited by Matthew Wysocki, due out in late 2012 with McFarland Press.
