I study the history and theory of rhetoric and specialize in rhetoric of health and medicine. My dissertation examines rhetorics of public health promotion. Specifically, I look at public and global health campaigns that respond to the exigency of infectious and communicable diseases, from seasonal and pandemic influenza to antibiotic-resistant superbugs. My study contributes to our understanding of how rhetorics of public health influence the outcomes of outbreak. I also consider the implications of the uptake of these rhetorics in popular culture and in the public discourse of health more generally. My article, "Inoculating the Public: Managing Vaccine Rhetoric," appeared in a special issue of the web-based rhetoric journal, Present Tense.
Between 2009 and 2010, I also participated in the development of an interactive visualization tool for reading, writing, and teaching complex narrative. Two articles co-authored by members of our research team that discuss aspects of this SSHRC-funded digital humanities research project will appear in a forthcoming issue of Literary and Linguistic Computing. To learn more about this project, which is based out of the University of British Columbia’s Digital Literacy Centre, click here.
