Awards for Jeanne Fahnestock!
The RSA honors Jeanne for her work.
Jeanne Fahnestock has been awarded the 2012 Book Award from the Rhetoric Society of America (RSA) for her new book Rhetorical Style: The Uses of Language in Persuasion (Oxford UP, 2011). Jeanne received the announcement along with these comments: “The field of nominees was very large and quite competitive, but your book stood out for its utter originality, strength of argument, and integration of multiple fields’ approaches to language within a sophisticated rhetorical framework. Simply put, there is nothing quite like this book out there, and we appreciate the scope and precision of a work of scholarship that will be of value to rhetorical studies and many other fields for years to come.”
Later that same day, Jeanne received the message that she’d been named a Fellow of the Rhetoric Society of America. According to their website, RSA Fellows are eminent professionals who “have produced scholarship in rhetorical studies that is remarkable for its quality and quantity, have participated in the work of the RSA, whether on the Board, on its committees, or in other capacities, and have worked to increase the visibility and influence of rhetorical studies through public lectures, teaching, advocacy, or other activities.” Visit here and here for more information about RSA fellows.
So many congratulations to Jeanne!
