University of Arkansas Scholar Wins Book Award From the National Communication Association

Lisa M. Corrigan, an associate professor in the department of communication and director of the gender studies program at the University of Arkansas, recently received the 2017 Diamond Anniversary Book Award from the National Communication Association. The award honors the author of the most outstanding scholarly book published in the field of communication over the previous two years.

Professor Corrigan was honored for her book Prison Power: How Prison Influenced the Movement for Black Liberation (University Press of Mississippi, 2016). “Prison Power is the first rhetorical history of the role of prison in the Black Power movement, and it tells the story of how prison has shaped racial demands for equality from the civil rights era to the War on Terror,” Dr. Corrigan said.

Dr. Corrigan is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, where she majored in communication and English literature. She holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in rhetoric and political communication from the University of Maryland, College Park.
