Associate Professor of Communication Studies, Vanderbilt University

Bennett's research focuses on the rhetoric of health and medicine. His most book, Managing Diabetes: The Cultural Politics of Disease, argues that popular anecdotes, media representations, and communal myths are as meaningful as medical and scientific understandings of disease when contemplating diabetes’ public character. Bennett has lived with type-one diabetes since 2004.
