Corey Jay Liberman

Associate Professor of Communication and Media Arts
  • Corey Liberman, Ph.D.

Corey studies the way that individuals use communication in order to produce desired effects within the interpersonal, group, and organizational realms. Although his scholarly interests seem to change rather often, he is currently involved in several projects that examine how organizations seem to manage crises and communicate risks to their key stakeholders. He recently published a book called Risk and Crisis Communication: Communicating in a Disruptive Age, highlighting both the possibilities and [potential] obstacles associated with risk and crisis communication within a myriad of different organizations and from a multitude of different perspectives. In addition, he is working on two books, Casing Mediated Communication and Casing Nonverbal Communication, the former of which examines a collection of 26 different case studies about the link between relationships (their creation, maintenance, and dissolution) and the use of social media platforms and the latter of which examines a collection of 25 different case studies highlighting the role of nonverbal communication in the interpersonal, group, mediated, health, political, and instructional worlds. He is also working on the third edition of Organizational Communication: Strategies for Success. His favorite courses to teach at Marymount Manhattan College are Principles and Theories of Communication, Public Relations and Strategic Communication, Small Group Communication, and Persuasion. When he is not teaching or writing, Corey loves to spend time with his family (especially his two children, Hailey and Bradley), watch sports (desperately hoping that the New York Giants and the New York Mets might be able to make the playoffs each year), watch a daily episode of his favorite television show of all time (The Sopranos), and re-read any and all book(s) written by Malcolm Gladwell. He has published five books, including:
