Carlos Flores researches and teaches in the areas of rhetoric and public advocacy. An assistant professor in residence with UNLV's Department of Communication Studies, Flores is interested in the ways public deliberation and advocacy are co-created and shared in local communities, how advocacy is practiced in mediated settings, and the ways in which civil communication can be used to improve the quality of public discourse.
His recent work has appeared in New Media Society, and he has presented at conferences such as the Rhetoric Society of America, National Communication Association, and the Western States Communication Association. He previously served as a volunteer for One n' Ten, an LGBTQ+ youth organization in Phoenix, AZ, and is also a certified facilitator for the Institute of Civil Dialogue, which is an organization that promotes public dialogue and perspectives through the lens of civil communication.
