Rhetoric of Health & Medicine(RHM) Symposium, 2017:
Theories and Practices for a New Field

Gathering at the Kingsgate Marriott on September 14-15, 2017, this two-day symposium gives us the space to think through

  • what our new field should be
  • what are the pressing questions that need to be addressed
  • how to build better research collaborations (with one another and with others from different fields) and
  • where we go from here.
Participant keywords from 2015

We will again be focusing on conversations with one another and thinking through concepts and questions important to a new field. A big part of Friday will be devoted to discussing your in progress work.

Ellen Barton and Robin Jensen will be our keynote speakers!!

I look forward to seeing y’all to Cincinnati!
