Lily Herakova joins the Department of Communication and Journalism as an Assistant Professor and a Teaching Coordinator for TAs. A native of Bulgaria, Dr. Herakova holds a PhD in Communication from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and has taught at various colleges and universities for nearly 10 years. Her research is in the areas and at the intersections of Health Communication, Food Studies, Pedagogy, and Social Justice, and has been published nationally and internationally. Using ethnographic, performance, and narrative methods, Lily explores the role of communication in everyday processes of learning, knowledge construction and negotiation, and community-building.
