Bob Ivie Wins NCA Distinguished Scholar Award
Posted: Monday, November 18, 2013
Bob Ivie, Professor Emeritus in the departments of American Studies and Communication and Culture, has been named a National Communication Association Distinguished Scholar.
The award recognizes and rewards members for a lifetime of scholarly achievement in the study of human communication. The NCA Distinguished Scholar Award, created in 1991, invites past Scholars to select members to join this select group.
Ivie's research often has focused on rhetoric, on democracy and the problem of war. “The NCA is the field’s largest academic organization and, as a member of the American Council of Learned Societies, a key force in advancing scholarship on the process and consequence of human communication in its diverse forms," said Ivie. Membership in this community of scholars has been instrumental to my efforts to analyze and critique the rhetorical constituents of war culture.”
