We're a tad late in reporting this happy news, but Brad Cook (PhD '96 and an Assistant Professor of Classics at the University of Mississippi) was named the winner of the Rhetorica Prize for his article 'Swift-boating in Antiquity: Rhetorical Framing of the Good Citizen in Fourth-Century Athens', published in Rhetorica 30.3 (2012).  The $1,000 prize, awarded at the Biennial Conference of the International Society for the History of Rhetoric held last July in Chicago, honors the best essay published in volumes 29 and 30 of Rhetorica.  Congratulations to Brad for this wonderful recognition of your work!
