Assistant Professor, Department of Communication Studies

Dr. House is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Studies. Dr. House’s current research examines the rhetorical strategies, underpinnings and justifications of pastoral communication surrounding the HIV/AIDS crisis that disproportionately affect people of African descent. His scholarship focuses on three areas of the world currently ravaged by AIDS--sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States-- as they can best provide a representative sample of both world-wide HIV/AIDS cases and diverse Black Christian churches that speak to the multitudes on a weekly, sometimes daily, basis through a culturally geographic and theologically grounded religious rhetoric.
