Jeremy Omori, B.A., CPhT is currently a master's student in the School of Social Transformation's Social and Cultural Pedagogy program. He has received his Bachelors of Arts in Human Communication, with an emphasis in Performance Studies and Intercultural Communication, along with a certificate in Asian Pacific American Studies and LGBT Studies at Arizona State University. He is also a Certified Pharmacy Technician and is currently licensed in the state of Arizona. His research interests are influenced from his undergraduate experience in the embodiment and intersections of identity--namely in race, gender and sexuality--through performative and phenomenological methods. Currently, he is interested in the relationship between critical communication pedagogy and the common theoretical and practical backgrounds in social and public pedagogies, and how to expand it beyond the communication classroom, into other disciplines and to the greater public.
