We are pleased to announce that Hillary Clinton in the News: Gender and Authenticity in American Politics by Shawn J. Parry-Giles has won the 2015 Marie Hochmuth Nichols Award, given by the National Communication Association’s Public Address Division.
The award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to scholarship in public address.
The award committee stated they were impressed by “the clarity and consistency of argument sustained throughout the book. With so much scholarship published about Hillary Clinton, it’s difficult to say something new. Not only does [the] book manage to do that, but the argument is salient to current media coverage of Clinton. The committee believes that this book deserves and will quickly earn a spot on the short list of key academic studies of Hillary Clinton.”
The award will be given during the NCA’s 101st annual convention in Las Vegas, November 20.
