Carl Hyden, Associate Dean for Administration in the School of Global Journalism & Communication, came to MSU in 1995 after 16 years working first for Baltimore Mayor, then Maryland Governor, William Donald Schaefer writing speeches, planning events, tracking legislation, handling issues of protocol and more.

He's taught courses that include rhetoric, political communication, propaganda, public relations and advertising. And he's presented papers on the Anne Arundel County slots referenda, political advertising and Governor Schaefer's rhetorical style.

His primary research interest involves ways in which monuments, architecture and landscape inhabit place and communicate what is important to society. Conference papers on local and national 9/11 memorials, the Chicago parks system, the High Line in NYC, Westminster Arcade in Providence, RI and Maryland's memorials to Thurgood Marshall became chapters in Public Places: Sites of Political Communication, a book he co-authored.

He contributed a chapter about the site of Washington's National Gallery of Art as a place of public memory. That chapter, "The National Gallery of Art: Remembering the Haunting Voices of the Ghosts," appears in the recently released book, Rhetorics Haunting the National Mall.

He is a member of the National Communication Association, the Eastern Communication Association and the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication. He has had active roles in governance of ECA.

Outside Morgan, he is a member of the Board of Directors and Secretary General of the United States of America Wushu-Kungfu Federation (USAWKF). He is also Deputy Secretary General and Special Advisor to the President of the Pan America Wushu Federation (PAWF). He is Immediate Past President of the Collegiate Forensics Association (CFA), a speech and debate organization. In these roles, he has traveled 24 states and to Brazil, Canada, China and Taiwan.

Research Interests: communication and place, place and public memory, communication and the electoral process, political advertising, propaganda and speech/debate
