Robb, Jaime My name is Jaime Robb and I am a doctoral student studying Communication at University of South Florida. I am a teacher and student, whose work centers around discourse, community and marginalized identities in health-related situations. I teach both SPC 2608- Introduction to Public Speaking; SPC 3544- Persuasion and Media a required course for Communication majors. Both courses serve as an introduction/invitation to Communication as a discipline and the foundational theories central to the field. While Persuasion is focused on the traditions of Rhetoric and the social impact of persuasive strategies; Public Speaking allows students to learn the various theories of oral communication and engage with them in a practical way. My focus as a researcher starts by centering language as consequential to the human experience (Burke, 1945). My Master’s thesis centralized rhetorical theories and ideas of community sense-making to highlight the impact fan participation in online settings. Since I have started the Ph.D. program, I have begun to examine the impact of discursive representation on marginalized identities in health-related areas. For my dissertation project, I plan to conduct in-depth interviews with marginalized individuals who are located outside the dominant health market place. What will be central to this project is the question of how communication constitute our conceptualization of health? Additionally, what is at stake for those individuals who are not considered when crafting messages surrounding health?
