Emma Frances Bloomfield, PhD

Currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, 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 and science communication, specifically involving identity, ideologies, and storytelling. For example, a lot of my work has explored intersections of science and religion, environment and economics, and technical and public spheres.

My primary research areas are climate communication and strategies for engaging people in conversations on controversial topics. In my other work, I have addressed environmental memory places, creationist tourist attractions, digital communication, political rhetoric, and film.

I can be reached at emma.bloomfield@unlv.edu and I am happy to answer 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 current research initiatives, read my current CV, and access some of my publications.

Thanks for visiting!

Best,

Dr. EFB
