COMMUNICATIONS PROFESSOR'S WORK WINS AWARD
OSWEGO -- The Eastern Communication Association has awarded its 2002 Everett Lee Hunt Award to Dr. Nola Heidlebaugh, associate professor of communication studies. The award is for her book, "Judgment, Rhetoric and the Problem of Incommensurability: Recalling Practical Wisdom."
According to Susan Drucker, chair of the committee that selects the award recipient, the award is presented "in recognition of a major contribution to the understanding of rhetoric and communication as a human function in the contemporary world, a means of explaining and realizing public responsibilities beyond the discipline of communication, and/or an intellectual and humane instrument for merging diverse fields of knowledge in a way that infuses them with moral purpose and public significance."
The University of South Carolina Press published Heidlebaugh's book last fall. In it, the author delves into ancient Greek and Roman rhetorical theory to identify inventive methods that can be resurrected and applied to modern issues.
