Dr. Basu joined the faculty in August 2008. His research explores how intercultural communication provides a framework to understand meaning making on health, illness, and living in marginalized contexts. Philosophies of critical intercultural communication guide his scholarship. With particular emphasis on theorizing culture as a site of globalization and social change, Dr. Basu documents and analyzes intercultural health narratives that emerge from dialogue between the researcher and research participants. His research interest is in locating communication across cultures within geopolitical discourses of power, subordination, resistance, and agency.
