I am Mark Chen from China. My research interests fall in the realm of rhetorical theory, comparative rhetoric and cross culture communication. My interest in rhetorical theory began 8 years ago when I pursued my MA degree and studied rhetoric under the guidance of Professor Liu Yameng. I have published 8 papers in Chinese journals in the field of rhetorical study and my recent research is about ethos. Teaching ESL is my job and I have taught English for 9years, including 2 years in a secondary school and 7 years in Quanzhou Normal University.
