Dave Hauser '08 explores the intersections of war, metaphor, and cancer research
What if the way that we discussed and understood cancer impacted our ability to prevent the disease in the first place?
We often use metaphors like “war on cancer,” “battling the disease,” and “surviving the fight” to talk about cancer. But what if those war-like metaphors unintentionally influence how we deal with cancer?
For Dave Hauser ’08, those questions have defined his research in conceptual metaphor theory since he began to pursue a Ph.D. in social psychology at the University of Michigan.
