Lisa Keränen, associate professor of Communication, guest edited “Inventing the Future: The Rhetorics of Science, Technology, and Medicine,” a special issue of POROI: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Rhetorical Analysis and Invention.

The issue included 17 commissioned essays by leading scholars who study the rhetoric of science, technology, and medicine. The project began as a day-long National Communication Association (NCA) preconference that Keränen organized to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Association for the Rhetoric of Science & Technology (ARST), of which she now serves as president. The publication of the issue coincided with the release of a series of digital interviews with many of the authors.
