Clint G. Graves is a PhD student in Interpersonal and Health Communication. Originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, he earned a BAC in communication studies and BA in English from The University of Tennessee. He completed his MA in Interpersonal and Health Communication at the University of Georgia. Clint is a communication theorist and methodologist who uses quantitative and rhetorical analyses to explore the fundamental dynamics involved in self-other encounter. Specifically, he favors a social cognitive approach that attempts to explain how individuals make sense of notions like “truth,” “evaluation,” and “relating” during interaction.
Alongside UGA professor Dr. Jennifer Samp, Clint has recently begun a research trajectory examining the interpersonal phenomenon of “gaslighting” as it manifests in close personal relationships.
