Shanice Jones Cameron is a doctoral student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill studying Communication.
Hi, I’m Shanice. I’m a PhD student at UNC Chapel Hill in the Department of Communication. I earned a B.A. in English and B.A. in Political Science from North Carolina Central University. I earned my M.A. in Communication Studies from UNC Charlotte.
My research engages with black women’s health, critical studies, and media studies. Broadly, I am interested in: a) why and how the underpinnings of biomedicine may produce unequal access to well-being, b) the complexities of using social media platforms, which are algorithm and capital driven, to produce counter discourses about well-being, and c) how Black female content creators of well-being discourses might be empowered within this context.
In addition to studying Communication, I’m a mom of three, vegan, yogini, (pending) half-marathoner, and former freelance web designer. When I’m not researching, writing, or with my family, you can usually find me self-caring through meditation, thought work, running, graphic + web design, and creating content. Oh, and you can usually find me multitasking and listening to a podcast or audiobook.
