Dr. Kevin Thomas, Assistant Professor of Multicultural Branding

Kevin Thomas

Strategic Communication

Expertise: Research focuses on the socio-political impact of marketing communication and consumer behavior. Dr. Thomas explores how identity markers (ie. Race, gender, class, and sexuality) are represented in marketing and experienced in the marketplace.

I use insights discovered in this area to improve the lived experience of historically oppressed populations through policy-relevant and community participatory action research.
