Emma Frances Bloomfield, PhD

Currently an Assistant Professor at UNLV, I graduated from the University of Southern California with a PhD in Communication, focus in Rhetoric, Politics, and Publics. I am a rhetorician interested in scientific controversies, specifically at the intersection of public understanding of science, identity, the environment, religion, technology, and the body in the public sphere.

My dissertation addressed the intersection of science and religion in historical and contemporary controversies. In my other work, I have addressed environmental memory places, tourist attractions, documentary films, digital communication, and political rhetoric around themes of controversy, identity, and argumentation.

I can be reached at emma.bloomfield@unlv.edu and I am happy to answer any questions, brainstorm project ideas, and find new partners in research. Please feel free to look at the other pages on this site to learn more about my research initiatives, read my current CV, and access some of my publications.
