Benjamin W. Mann successfully defends his dissertation!

You can call him Dr. Mann! In mid-December, Benjamin Mann successfully defended his dissertation, “Intersectional Stigma Communication, Demi-rhetoricity, and Critical Health Communication: Affirming (Neuro)queer Subjectivities.”

His committee members agreed that he had put together an important project grounded in interviews with hard-to-reach and often overlooked individuals and that his research would go a long way to extend critical health communication scholarship and generate health-care protocols that better serve diverse populations.

We can’t wait to see you walk across the graduation stage in May, Ben!
