Associate Professor of Communication Matt Sienkiewicz and Roche Center for Catholic Education Executive Director Melodie Wyttenbach have received 2019 Alpha Sigma Nu Book Awards from the honor society of Jesuit colleges and universities. Books are judged on the basis of scholarship, significance of the topic and its continuing importance to scholars in several disciplines, mastery of extensive literature, research findings, authority in interpretation, objectivity, and readability. Sienkiewicz was honored for his book, The Other Air Force: U.S. Efforts to Reshape Middle Eastern Media Since 9/11. Wyttenbach was honored for Responding to the Call for Educational Justice: Transformative Catholic-Led Initiatives in Urban Education, which she co-edited with L. Mickey Fenzel of Loyola University Maryland. The Alpha Sigma Nu Book Awards recognize books in three different areas (Humanities, Sciences, and Professional Studies) over a three-year cycle. This year’s award winners were in the Professional Studies category. More from BC News.
