A scholarly book on hate speech co-written by John Haas, associate professor and director of the UT Knoxville School of Communication Studies, has been recognized by the National Communication Association (NCA).
The Communication of Hate, co-written by Haas and Michael Waltman of the University of North Carolina, has won the NCA's Franklyn S. Haiman Award for Distinguished Scholarship in Freedom of Expression.
"My goal in writing the book was to provide a tool to mitigate the damage caused by hate speech and provide helpful strategies for overcoming its often devastating effects," said Haas.
