Professor Vivian named recipient of the 2011 Class of 1933 Distinction in the Humanities Award

CELEBRATIONS!!

Professor Brad Vivian has been named the recipient of the 2011 Class of 1933 Distinction in the Humanities Award from the College of the Liberal Arts, which recognizes outstanding work in the field of humanities. Professor Vivian’s two most recent monographs, published or forthcoming from Oxford University Press, include “Commonplace Witnessing: Rhetorical Invention, Historical remembrance, and Public Culture” and “Campus Misinformation: A Threat to Free Speech and Academic Freedom on College Campuses.” Together, these works illustrate Professor Vivian’s contribution to rhetorical theory and public memory, alongside a deep commitment to democratic processes and citizen engagement. Professor Vivian has also contributed to the humanities through his recent service as Director of the Center for Democratic Deliberation, within the Penn State’s McCourtney Institute for Democracy.

Congratulations, Brad!
