Dr. Jordan Soliz, Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies
I am an Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies for the Department of Communication Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. A majority of my research and teaching focuses on social identity (e.g., race and ethnicity, age, religion) and intergroup communication with a particular emphasis on intergroup dynamics in family relationships. Further, I am currently involved in projects investigating intergroup relations in computer-mediated contexts. The information on this site will provide you with an overview of my research, a description of courses I teach along with examples of student projects, additional instructional activities, and information on current and past collaborations with graduate and undergraduate students. On the Research page, you will also find resources to learn more about the communication discipline and relevant areas of inquiry (e.g., intergroup communication). Currently, I serve as the editor for the Journal of Family Communication and the Vice-Chair of the Intergroup Communication Interest group of the International Communication Association. You can visit the interest group's blog where I post commentary on research and social relations. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments about my research, teaching, or the Department of Communication Studies.
