Professor Rojecki studies political communication in three contexts: political movements, racial politics, and globalization. He is the author of Silencing the Opposition (University of Illinois Press, 1999) and co-author (with Robert Entman) of The Black Image in the White Mind (University of Chicago Press, 2000). The Black Image won the Goldsmith Book Prize awarded by the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University (2002) and the American Political Science Association Robert E.
