Assistant Professor, Communication Studies
Rhetoric, Food, and Social Movements
Bryan Moe, assistant professor of communication studies, grew up in Southern California but spent seven of the last 10 years living and traveling in the American South and Pacific Islands. These journeys inform his academic interest in the communication practices of diverse cultures and in particular the rhetorical qualities of their food and foodways. Currently he is finishing his dissertation that looks at the culinary rise of new gourmet food trucks and the social movements that helped bring it to the public’s consciousness. He feels incredibly joyful and lucky to be back home and to be joining the Biola community.
