Annie Mendenhall Honored with 2024 Outstanding Book Award from the Conference on College Composition and Communication

Annie Mendenhall, associate professor of English and director of the first-year writing program at Georgia Southern University, has been honored with the 2024 Outstanding Book Award in the monograph category from the Conference on College Composition and Communication, an organization within the National Council of Teachers and English. The award is presented annually and recognizes books within the field of composition and rhetoric. Dr. Mendenhall will receive the award at the conference’s annual convention this April.

Dr. Hall’s award-winning book, Desegregation State: College Writing Programs after the Civil Rights Movement (Utah State University Press, 2022), provides a history of federal enforcement of higher education desegregation and its impact on writing programs from 1970 to 1988.

“CCCC is the oldest and largest professional organization in my field, and I have been a member of the organization for my entire professional career,” said Dr. Mendenhall. “It is a major career achievement and a huge honor to be recognized by the CCCC with this award and to have my work included with so many other outstanding scholars who have won this award in the past.”

Dr. Mendenhall received her Ph.D. in writing, rhetoric, and literacy from Ohio State University.
