Kristine Warrenburg Rome, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Communication who joined the Flagler College community in 2009-2010. Her research is driven by the problematic concerning the politics of difference. Such politics – of race, class, and/or gender – resonate in the situational context of communication interaction and create opportunities to re-produce hierarchy and/or transformation. Her research has appeared in Contemporary Argumentation & Debate, as well as in multiple international argumentation conference proceedings. Her work on Robert F. Kennedy’s April 4, 1968 announcement of Martin Luther King, Jr’s assassination, which has been presented at over a dozen national and international scholarly conferences, is still ongoing.
