Research Interests: 
Dr. Christine S. Davis is a Professor in the Communication Studies Department at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Her research interests are in the intersection of family, culture, health humanities, and health communication. Dr. Davis publishes regularly on topics such as children’s health, children’s mental health, end-of-life communication, family disability, and qualitative research methods. She specifically studies people with illnesses and conditions that are incurable as they face revisions in their personal identity and narrative and negotiate the liminal spaces between ‘well’ and ‘unwell,’ alive and dead, and power and marginalization.
