Dr. Bartesaghi joined the faculty in 2005. She adopts social construction as a metatheoretical tool with which to interrogate how institutions are materialized or (en)acted in discourse. As a language and social interaction scholar, she uses discourse analysis, which is doing critical work “from the inside out.” Her social critique emerges from an examination of the communication dynamics at hand, from transcripts and documents collected from fieldwork. Her work has analyzed institutional power in health settings, education, and the dynamics of crisis communication. In 2005, Dr Bartesaghi was awarded the National Communication Association (NCA), Language and Social Interaction Division Top Dissertation Award. In 2014 and 2012, she received the Department Faculty Recognition Award. In 2012, the Florida Communication Association Best Teacher Award, and NCA's award Teachers on Teaching.
