Project title: Community Discourse and Rhetorical Strategies in the Development of the New Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5)
Mentor: Rebecca Pope-Ruark
This semester I developed presentations for two venues. First, I presented at the Association for Business Communication Europe Symposium in Modena, Italy. This involved developing and testing a Keynote presentation, then traveling to Italy and presenting as the only undergraduate at the conference. I then developed another presentation for the LIFE @ Elon group and presented with several other Lumen Scholars. I have also been working with Technical Communication Quarterly to push my article toward publication.
