RHM activities at the 2019 CCCCs

It’s that time of the year when RHM scholars convene at the CCCC’s conference.

We always have activities planned so we would love to welcome new friends and to catch up with old friends.

Meet the Editors

You can meet the editors of Rhetoric of Health Medicine  at the ATTW Editors’ Roundtable from 3:15-4:30 on 3/12, and at the CCCC Research Network Forum the morning of 3/13.

Come and introduce yourself and tell us about your work.

RHM Happy Hour

Come and hang out and meet folks at the RHM Happy Hour on Thursday, March 14 at 5:00ish at August Henry’s http://www.augusthenrys.com/

The location is just a couple of blocks from where the convention center.

Medical Rhetoric Standing Group Business Meeting

As one of the first standing groups and one of the oldest SIGs associated with the CCCCs, we will be meeting on

  • Thursday, March 14 from 6:30 to 7:30 PM  in room 407 of the Convention Center.

We’ll post the official agenda here closer to the meeting, but our main activity of the evening will be to break into small groups and discuss a series of questions of interest to the broader community. These questions and the information/answers generated will help guide the community’s work in the coming year:

  • what are pressing topics that we need more work on?
  • how can be more inclusive in our research practice?
  • what are some effective practices for moving into community based research?
  • how can expand out methodological ethics?
  • what suggestions to get more folks involved in RHM?
  • how can we make our work more public?

Sessions at the CCCCs

We typically pull together the panels that have a clear RHM focus. There are a number of additional presentations scattered throughout. (Thanks to the CCCCs Standing Group Graduate Student Representative, Katie Walkup, for pulling these together.)
