Dr. Dwaine Jengelley
Clinical Assistant Professor & Director of the Visiting Scholar Program
Dwaine Jengelley’s research focuses on communication in matters of international security. Currently, he examines the prominence of counterterrorism stories in the mainstream print media and the tone of news coverage. In this area, he explores if the negativity in terrorism news coverage is influenced by the economic fortunes of media organizations. He also is doing research on the portrayals of the Black Lives Matter movement in editorial cartoons. He examines how cartoonists have framed the issue of racism within the BLM moment and the ways in which this might be different from the period preceding it. His teaching interests include international terrorism, international political economy, and sports and politics.
Born and raised in Jamaica, Dwaine migrated to the United States in 1999. He earned his BA in political science at Benedict College, Columbia, SC, and his MA and Ph.D. at Purdue University in the Department of Political Science.
