The 5th Biennial Rhetoric of Health and Medicine Symposium

Virtual Event on September 9-10, 2021

Welcome! While we are unable to meet in person, the RHM Symposium Planning Committee is working hard to create an online environment dedicated to enriching the RHM community through conversations and discussions while keeping the spirit of the in-person symposium alive and well. The fifth iteration of the biennial symposium is dedicated to (re-)inventing who we are and what we do in the rhetoric of health and medicine. 

We will gather virtually on September 9-10, 2021 to continue our discussions focused on the rhetoric of health and medicine. For more details on this year’s symposium, check out our schedule

The Works-In-Progress or Working Paper Group session will be held on Friday, Sept 10, and is reserved for those who were accepted to the symposium through a peer-review process. The Works-In-Progress session remains one of the more unique features of the RHM Symposium since it provides small groups a dedicated time to workshop their work-in-progress. Take a moment to find out what the participants are working on by reviewing our participant profiles! And, If you work in the area of RHM, it’s never too early to being brainstorming a proposal for the next time around!
