Casing Communication Theory, published by Kendall Hunt Publishing Company, exposes readers to some of the most cited, most prolific, most important theories within the dynamic field of communication. The edited collection features 24 case studies that analyze communication theories in different contexts, including identity, self-efficacy, humor communication, social penetration, and more. 

Corey Jay Liberman earned his doctorate from Rutgers University and is an Associate Professor in MMC’s Department of Communication and Media Arts. His research spans the interpersonal communication, group communication, and organizational communication worlds, and he is currently interested in studying the social practices of dissent within organizations, specifically the antecedents, processes, and effects associated with effective employee dissent communication. He is currently working on a book dealing with risk and crisis communication, as well as a case study book focusing on communication theory.

Congratulations on this exciting achievement, Professor!
