  • Part-Time Lecturer


Fadoua Loudiy has a MS in International Affairs from the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) at the University of Pittsburgh and a Ph.D. in Philosophy of Communication & Rhetorical Studies from Duquesne University. Her work focuses on the role of culture and power in rhetorics and practices of oppression and marginalization, as well as resistance. Her diverse background in the intellectual traditions of philosophy of communication, communication ethics, political communication and media, and intercultural communication as well as her embodied knowledge of the various cultures and languages of North Africa and the Middle East and francophone cultures provide her with a unique lens.  She is the author of Transitional Justice and Human Rights in Morocco: Negotiating the Years of Lead (Routledge Studies in Middle Eastern Politics, 2010 and 2014), and the forthcoming edited book Activist Rhetoric and Narratives of Resistance in Pittsburgh (Lexington Books, 2024), as well as several journal articles and book chapters. 

Prior to joining academia, Fadoua worked as freelance translator and interpreter, and as a language and culture consultant with various international organizations in the US and Morocco. She currently serves as the President of the Pennsylvania Communication Association (PCA).
