I am an Associate Professor in Writing and Rhetoric at the University of the Sciences, a small health-science oriented university in Philadelphia (specializing in pharmacy, physical and occupational therapy, biology, and chemistry-related fields). Full disclosure: my field is rhetoric/ rhetoric of health and medicine, which, in this context, seems most closely related to science and technology studies. I have published on issues related to the history and rhetoric of psychiatry in particular. For my current project I am focusing on the discursive construction of orthorexia as a new "cyberchondria" at the nexus of healthism, consummerism, and biopoliticized bodies.
