Marquette University Scholar Wins Book Award From the Conference on College Composition and Communication

Elizabeth Angeli, an associate professor of English in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences at Marquette University in Milwaukee, has received the award for Best Book in Technical or Scientific Communication from the Conference on College Composition and Communication. The CCCC is a constituent organization within the National Council of Teachers of English, committed to supporting the agency, power, and potential of diverse communicators inside and outside of postsecondary classrooms.

The award honors Dr. Angeli’s book, Rhetorical Work in Emergency Medical Services: Communicating in the Unpredictable Workplace (Routledge, 2018). In the book, Dr. Angeli details her 16-month study in the emergency medical services workplace, exploring how EMS professionals employ rhetoric to make decisions and communicate in unpredictable situations.

The award committee stated that Dr. Angeli was honored for “covering an aspect of medicine in the frontline of patient care that is highly marginalized within the medical community.” Since the publication of her book, Dr. Angeli has partnered with multiple fire departments to build writing and training programs and test new models for EMS report writing.

Dr. Angeli joined the Marquette University faculty in 2016. She was recently promoted to associate professor and granted tenure. Earlier, she taught at Towson University in Maryland for five years.

Dr. Angeli is a graduate of Marquette University, where she majored in psychology and minored in Italian. She holds a master’s degree in English from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a Ph.D. in English from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.
