Professor Jennifer Kam wins the 2016 Early Career Award from the Interpersonal Communication Division of the National Communication Association. This award honors a scholar who is still in the early part of his/her career yet who has already played an important role in shaping interpersonal communication research. The scholar’s body of work must contribute significantly to knowledge of interpersonal communication and show promise for continued contributions. The selection committee evaluated the scholar’s contribution and promise based on productivity and the strength of the published work, including its theoretical or conceptual foundation, originality, methodological rigor, and impact. The award is presented annually at the Interpersonal Communication Division’s business meeting at the NCA convention. Congratulations to Jennifer!
