    Gerald Powell

    Part-time Lecturer


    Gerald Powell has an interdisciplinary range of written publications and expertise within the fields of rhetoric, semiotics, film, and philosophy and is in the process of completing his first film, ā€œIā€™m American: Am I a Prostitute?ā€ His research is concerned with everyday experiences, those bits of information that we have been conditioned not to see, arguably a byproduct of a speed driven, hyper-technocratic society. Every aspect of our contemporary culture is influenced by speed; for instance, writing, reading, media, identity, culture, currency, food, medicine, and semantics are entrenched in this emerging narrative that Dr. Powell calls American Quotidien. In addition to his scholarly and creative projects, Dr. Powell has lectured at several universities abroad, some of which include University of Cambridge (New Hall), Fatih University, and Ecole Polytechnique de Tunisie.
