Research Interests
Dr. Samentha Sepúlveda’s research concentrates on the crossroads of organizational and internatural communication (communication with and about nature). Additionally, her research examines communication from a critical lens to discover how discourses maintain and challenge exploitation. By highlighting the oppressive practices maintained by these discourses, she also sheds light on linked oppression related to gender, race, class, and more.
