Rhetoric Race and Religion Institute Professor Christopher House Receives Dissertation Award
In selecting the dissertation, the awards committee noted that Dr. House's dissertation "...made meaningful contributions to communication scholarship regarding African Americans and/or the African Diaspora in insightful ways." One of the reviewers added that "the author's use of multiple methods to engage a topic that is crucial but rarely studied in communication is impressive. His engaging exploration of how personal involvement or personal vulnerability with disease actually causes these theologians to rethink and reframe what they espouse is compelling."
Dr. House served as a Visiting Professor at Memphis Theological Seminary at it Rhetoric Race and Religion Institute.
