    • Biography

      Dr. Sergey Rybas has been part of Capital University’s professional writing program since 2008. His research areas include power, subjectivity and identity issues in computer-mediated communication; performances of online community; multimodal teaching and learning; and epistemologies of the information age. He has also been involved in projects exploring politics, practices and performances of nationality and nationalism and has specifically focused on issues of national identification and difference in Eastern Europe and the former USSR. 

      Seeing the application of his research to a broad spectrum of disciplines in humanities and social sciences, he advocates critical cultural literacy as a primary goal of an interdisciplinary and intercultural dialogue on problems related to production, dissemination and interpretation of knowledge.
