CHARNELL PETERS Hello! I’m Charnell Peters, and I’m a communication scholar and writer. As a doctoral student at the University of Utah, I study race and communication.My current research focuses on communication about race within critical interpersonal and family communication contexts. Specifically, I examine how people negotiate meanings about genetic ancestry tests through communication.Aside from my scholarly work, I enjoy engaging in the arts. I am the former editor of Ruminate Magazine‘s online publication, The Waking, and I’ve read for Split Lip Magazine and The Common. In my free time, I enjoy writing poetry and learning to paint.Feel free to subscribe to my substack, Sincerely, Charnell for occassional essays and reflections.
