Amplifying Racial Justice Work in Rhetorics of Health and Medicine

English Wednesday, December 1, 2021 11:00 am-12:00 pm Virtual

The Language, Writing, and Rhetoric series presents Dr. Kimberly Harper (North Carolina A&T State University), Professor Veronica Joyner (Howard University) and Dr. Maria Novotny (University of Wisconsin, Madison) will present a panel-style talk on “Amplifying Racial Justice Work in Rhetorics of Health and Medicine”. In response to the growing awareness that racism and its interwoven structures have a direct correlation with health equity, these scholars’ research agendas grapple with issues that produce disparities for BIPOC and other marginalized communities.

Currently, they are working as co-editors on a special issue of the Rhetorics of Health and Medicine Journal, titled “In Living Color: Amplifying Racial Justice Work in RHM”, which situates the rhetoric of health and medicine within a racial justice framework.
