Named by Deanna L. Fassett and John T. Warren in their book of the same name, critical communication pedagogy is both a paradigm and an area of study. As a paradigm, this worldview contextualizes and provides a lens to view recent initiatives at the intersection of communication and education that deal with power relations as they arise from social systems of race, gender, class, disability, and sexuality. Critical communication pedagogy, at this level, serves as a framework that collects and provides coherence for the diverse work that takes a critical lens to issues of communication in pedagogical contexts.

As an area of study, critical communication pedagogy is also a subdiscipline that is beginning to develop on campuses across the United States. From site-specific studies to expansive views of educational practice, scholars use critical communication pedagogy to investigate power within a variety of contexts. By building on an interdisciplinary base, this communication-centered approach builds new ways of knowing and thinking about how (and to what effect) communication happens within classrooms.
