Jason earned his Ph.D. from the University of Georgia in Spring of 2016 with an emphasis in rhetoric. His teaching and research centers on questions of voice in public discourse. As a doctoral student, Jason’s dissertation, entitled The Public Voice, reads for publics as a signifier across three classical artifacts: Plato’s Symposium, Cicero’s De Oratore, and St. Augustine’s Confessions. Using poststructuralist and psychoanalytic theory, Jason argues that publics may be understood as elusive objects of desire or discursive lacunae. Jason has taught courses in rhetorical criticism, voice / political agency, and classical rhetoric. Jason’s research has appeared in the Quarterly Journal of Speech (forthcoming) and Rhetoric Society Quarterly."
