By Michelle Miller-Day, Penn State University–
The Applied Communication Division of the National Communication Association seeks nominations for its annual research awards. These awards acknowledge significant contributions in applied communication theory, research, and/or practice.
Awards may be given in three categories. One is given to the author(s) of an outstanding article published in a communication journal. A second award is given to author(s)/editor(s) of an outstanding scholarly book. Textbooks are not eligible. When warranted, the committee may choose to recognize edited books in a separate category. In addition, special journal issues on applied communication may be nominated and an award given. Articles, books, and special issues published with a 2007 or 2008 copyright date are eligible.
To apply, send a letter of nomination to the committee chair that includes a brief rationale and an explanation of the work’s significance. Self-nominations are encouraged. Any published reviews of scholarly books should be included. Submit four copies of the work.
The awards will be presented at the business meeting of the Applied Communication Division during the 2009 NCA Convention. It is anticipated that the award recipients will share a special panel at the 2010 NCA Convention.
Nominations and materials must be RECEIVED by Friday, August 14, 2009. Please send to: Dr. Michelle Miller-Day, Department of Communication Arts and Sciences, Penn State University, University Park, PA 16802. For more information or questions, send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org
