Wilfredo Flores, PhD

Researcher and educator based in Charlotte, NC

I’m an Assistant Professor of Digital Cultural Rhetorics at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Studies. 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


In Spring 2024, I'll be presenting at the Conference on College Composition and Communication and the Biennial Conference of the Rhetoric Society of America. In June, I'll be working on my book project as part of the National Humanities Center Summer Residency Program.
