TEACHING & TRAINING EXPERIENCE

In my dissertation, I positioned American cancer rhetoric as an expansive multimodal rhetorical formation that functions through constitutive means to create a veil of unity, a fabled and romanticized cancer community, that obfuscates, erases, silences, and justifies the disparities in cancer care wrought by capitalism.
