Keränen gave invited presentation

Lisa Keränen, associate professor of communication, gave an invited plenary presentation, "Technologies of the Self at the End of Life: Pastoral Power and the Rhetoric of Advance Care Planning," at a national forum, "After the Genome: A Language for Our Biotechnological Future:  Rhetoric, Science, Religion, and Ethics," at Wake Forest University on April 13. The forum provided a location for leading scholars from a variety of disciplines to discuss the vital topic of how language is shaping medical ethics, religion, and competing visions of our biotechnological future. Baylor University Press launched a book (featuring the presenters' research) as part of the event. Dr. Keränen shared the stage with well known figures in medical ethics, law, and philosophy such as Howard Brody, Tod Chambers, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Arthur W. Frank, Nancy King, and the Honorable Kenneth W. Starr.
