Currently an Assistant Professor at UNLV, I graduated from the University of Southern California with a PhD in Communication, focus in Rhetoric, Politics, and Publics. I am a rhetorician interested in the intersection of science, religion, technology, and the body in the public sphere.

My dissertation addressed the intersection of science and religion in historical and contemporary controversies. From climate change to evolution, I engaged the oftentimes conflicting and sometimes cooperative forces of science and religion, explored how they affect public deliberation, and analyzed their rhetorical power through narrative and argument.

I can be reached at efbloomfield@gmail.com and I am happy to answer any questions, brainstorm project ideas, and find new partners in research. Please feel free to look at the other pages on this site to learn more about my research initiatives, read my current CV, and follow my updates.
