Patrick Shaou-Whea Dodge is an Associate Professor Clinical Track and past Associate Program Chair at the University of Colorado Denver’s International College in Beijing.
He was a member of the NCA’s Task Force to Foster International Collaborations in the Age of Globalization and worked with the Communication University of China to co-organize the 2016 and 2018 NCA-CUC co-sponsored biennial conferences on, “Communication, Media, and Governance in the Age of Globalization.” In 2019 he worked with Shenzhen University (SZU) to co-organize the NCA-SZU 2019 Shenzhen Forum on “Communication Innovation, New Media, and Digital Journalism.”
His research interests include culture and communication, intercultural communication, and transcultural understanding, driven by a desire for more U.S.-China cross-cultural alliances. His current research on “China/Chinese Dream” discourse has led to extensive travel throughout China in search of “harmony” and “dreams.” His work has been published in journals such as the Chinese Journal of Communication, the Journal of International & Intercultural Communication, Intercultural Communication Studies, and Women & Language.
Patrick was the 2018 inaugural fellow for the NCA-CUC Visiting Fellows Program for Communication and Media Research. He is also the 2018-2020 Association for Chinese Communication Studies’ (ACCS) Vice-President Elect, and will serve as the ACCS President in 2021-2023.
Patrick has taught Communication courses in Beijing since 2007. His mixed ethnic background (Chinese/Taiwanese-American and European-American) has fueled his passion to learn more about China, Chinese culture and communication, and Sino-U.S. communication in the age of globalization.
