Bev Sauer teaches courses in Classical and Renaissance Rhetoric, advanced
professional and technical communication, the rhetoric of science,

investigates the rhetorical strategies that individuals employ to
represent an individual's embodied viewpoint at two critical moments of
knowledge transfer within risky industries: accident investigations and
workplace safety training and instruction.
