Alum Sarah Bishop Wins Two Book Awards for U.S. Media and Migration

 Sarah C. Bishop (PhD, Department of Communication, 2014) is the recipient of the 2017 Sue DeWine Distinguished Scholarly Book Award and the 2017 Outstanding Book Award from the National Communication Association's International and Intercultural Communication Division.  Bishop's book, U.S. Media and Migration: Refugee Oral Histories (Routledge, 2016) traces refugees' use of governmental and popular media throughout their transition to life in the United States. Drawing from seventy-four oral history interviews with refugees from multiple national origins living in California, New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas, Bishop's book reveals the centrality of media use and interpretation to refugee resettlement.
