KU professor’s book receives critical acclaim

Robert C. Rowland, KU professor and chair of communication studies, and his University of Oregon colleague David Frank have won the first $10,000 Kohrs-Campbell Prize in Rhetorical Criticism for their book, Share Land/Conflicting Identity: Trajectories of Israeli and Palestinian Symbol Use.

Rowland and Frank accepted the award during the National Communication Association conference in November at Miami Beach, Fla.

The biannual Kohrs-Campbell Prize is offered by the Michigan State University Press through its award-winning Rhetoric and Public Affairs Series.

Rowland and Frank’s book, published by Michigan State University Press, examines the roots of the Israeli-Palestine conflict.

Rowland’s previous books include The Rhetoric of Menachim Began (1985) and Analyzing Rhetoric (1999 and 2002).
