The National Communication Association announces the selection of Leanne Knobloch, a professor of communication at Illinois, as the 2018 recipient of the Charles H. Woolbert Research Award.
The award is given annually to honor a journal article or book chapter that has stood the test of time and has become a stimulus for new conceptualizations of communication phenomena. Knobloch was recognized for co-writing the article “A model of relational turbulence: The role of intimacy, relational uncertainty, and interference from partners in appraisals of irritations,” published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationship in 2004. Denise Solomon, a professor of communication arts and sciences at Pennsylvania State University, the other co-author of the article, will also be honored.
The award will be presented Nov. 10 at the NCA 104th Annual Convention in Salt Lake City.
