Student News – November 2014

Jennifer Hawkins, along with multiple communication scholars, will be participating in a book signing at the National Communication Association’s 100th Convention. Jennifer’s chapter, “Dying Inside of Me, Unexplained Recurrent Early Pregnancy Loss,” appears in: Communicating Pregnancy Loss: Narrative as a Method for Change (Peter Lang Publishing, Health Communication Series #8), edited by Rachel E. Silverman and Jay Baglia (Series editor: Gary Kreps).

The book’s authors “employ various feminist theories, narratives theories, and performance theories as well as well-known health communication concepts. The book’s narrative approach to writing about and understanding pregnancy loss offers readers a method for changing the way pregnancy loss is understood personally, culturally, and politically. This book is suitable for upper division undergraduate and graduate students of health communication, women & gender studies, medical humanities, life writing, narrative, and narrative analysis.” (Rachel Silverman & Jay Baglia). The book signing will be at 10am on Saturday, November 22nd at the booth for Peter Lang Publishing.
