Rhetoric and Science

The development of a One Health Communications minor, a set of five interdisciplinary courses focused on how ideas and meanings are produced and delivered, connecting humanities training with scientific thinking.

When and where the STEM fields have failed, it has often been as much a communication as a scientific issue. These fields struggle to translate knowledge both for public consumption and for the purpose of intellectual collaboration. The humanities have long been overlooked as a resource for improving the communication of scientific knowledge. The creation of a One Health Communications minor, the main outcome of this proposal, will elevate the role of the humanities, particularly English and rhetorical studies, within Delaware Valley University’s very popular One Health initiative which offers programming designed to better connect the various pre-vet, pre-health and other STEM programs. In addition to a new minor, the project outcomes will include a professional development workshop focused on integrating lessons from the field of rhetoric into the sciences; and campus-wide presentations that will address topics related to rhetoric and science as part of the One Health speaker series.

Communications; Communications; Composition and Rhetoric; History and Philosophy of Science, Technology, and Medicine
