Research Award for CRDM grads

The Canadian Association for the Study of Discourse and Writing (CASDW) awarded their Best Article or Book Chapter in Rhetoric, Writing Studies or Discourse Studies in 2013 to CRDM grads Dr. Ashley R. Kelly and Dr. Meagan Kittle Autry, and CRDM faculty William J. Kinsella, for their article “Risk, regulation, and rhetorical boundaries: claims and challenges surrounding a purported nuclear renaissance” in Communication Monographs.

Drs. Kelly and Kittle Autry have previously won an award for related work, which focused on the merger between Carolina utility giants Duke Energy and Progress Energy.

The Canadian Association for the Study of Discourse and Writing is a bilingual Canadian organization focusing on rhetoric, discourse studies, and writing studies. They also recentlyhonoured Dr. Kittle Autry’s dissertation among the finest rhetorically-focused dissertations written by Canadian students.

The Shearon Harris Nuclear Power Plant is owned by Duke Energy which, after the recent merger with Progress Energy, is the nation's largest electricity provider. Kinsella, Kelly, and Kittle Autry (2013) argue that this "mega-utility merger engages entangled discourses of economic and environmental risk, energy policy, and corporate and environmental regulation."
