Assistant Professor Scott Graham

We are thrilled to announce that Professor Scott Graham will join our faculty in Fall 2018! Scott is currently an Associate Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee the Director of the Public Engagement and Science Communication (PESC) Laboratory. His work leverages emerging digital research methods to support public engagement with rhetorical scholarship on science and health policy. 

Scott's most recent book, The Politics of Pain Medicine: A Rhetorical-Ontological Inquiry, offers a detailed exploration of the medical rhetoric surrounding pain medicine: he chronicles the work of interdisciplinary pain management specialists to found a new science of pain and a new approach to pain medicine grounded in a more comprehensive biospychosocial model. His analysis demonstrates how these materials ultimately shape the healthcare community’s understanding of what pain medicine is, how the medicine should be practiced and regulated, and how practitioner-patient relationships are best managed.
