Assistant Professor of Digital Cultural Rhetorics

University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Studies. 

Hello! My name is Wilfredo Flores (or Wil), and I’m a qualitative researcher and rhetorical scholar, and my research and teaching interface the colonial intimacies of science, technology, and medicine. In my projects and teaching, I foreground ethical community engagement practices and sustainable change by assembling theory and practice to build livable futures. I'm a co-founder and former organizer of Queering Medicine, and I'm also a co-producer for the Storying Sex podcast and oral history project. I’m also recently a research affiliate with the DISCO Network. Currently, I'm collaborating with faculty across UNCC to set up a digital storytelling lab, so hopefully you’ll hear more about that soon! Either way, I believe scholarship should follow a public-facing velocity (and I've been told I have a great radio voice). If you want to read a longer overview of who I am, check out my bio
