The Rhetorical Studies Reading Group is excited to announce our next group session. The RSRG will be joined by Jordynn Jack to discuss the rhetoric of neuroscience. Jack is an Associate Professor in the Department of English at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Her research interests include: rhetoric and composition, women’s rhetorics, rhetoric of science, rhetorical theory, technical and scientific writing, disability studies, medical humanities, science studies, rhetoric of medicine, heath, and disability, rhetoric and/of neuroscience.

Jack has asked us to examine two different texts in advance of her visit. The first is a piece entitled “This Is Your Brain On Rhetoric.” The second is a video entitled “How to Do Neurorhetorics: a Tutorial.”

The RSRG Meeting with Jordynn Jack will take place on March 6th, from 11:30-1:30 in Lincoln Hall 4007. Any questions can be directed to Katie Irwin at
