Clemson University Scholar Wins Book Award From the Rhetoric Society of America

Clemson University Scholar Cynthia Haynes Wins Book Award From the Rhetoric Society of AmericaCynthia Haynes, professor of English at Clemson University in South Carolina, has won the annual book prize from the Rhetoric Society of America. Professor Haynes was honored for The Homesick Phone Book: Addressing Rhetorics in the Age of Perpetual Conflict (Southern Illinois University Press, 2016).

Lee Morrissey, a colleague of Professor Haynes and chair of the department of English at Clemson University, says that “The Homesick Phonebook impressively combines key, classical rhetorical terms (such as topoi, arrangement and address), with the most pressing questions in ethics, law and politics — all of it filtered, initially, through the lens of a single German phonebook from World War II.”

Professor Haynes joined the faculty at Clemson University in 2006. She holds a bachelor’s degree in German, a master’s degree in humanities, and a Ph.D. in humanities, all from the University of Texas at Arlington.
