Narrative: BOB KRIZEK (Ph.D., Arizona State University) teaches and conducts research in the areas of organizational communication, sport communication, storytelling/narrative, identity performance, Whiteness, and ethnographic methodologies. In addition, he examines the personal and cultural significance of non-routine public events through the excavation of the stories of those in attendance. He often presents his research at national and regional conferences and his work has appeared in numerous journals including the Quarterly Journal of Speech, Management Communication Quarterly, Journal of Applied Communication Research, Journal of Sport and Social Issues, and Adolescence. He has served as chair of the Ethnography Division of the National Communication Association and currently serves as an Associate Editor of Management Communication Quarterly, Communication Monographs, Communication and Sport, Communication Yearbook, and Qualitative Communication Research. In regard to his work on Whiteness, the National Communication Association has awarded him the 2007 Charles H. Woolbert Research Award that recognizes a journal article or book chapter that has stood the test of time and has become a stimulus for new conceptualizations of communication phenomena. In regard to his work in Sport Communication, he served as the Special Guest Editor for the Western Journal of Communication (2008) issue entitled "Communication and the Community of Sport," the first journal issue in the Communication discipline dedicated to research on sport. He also presented the keynote address “Stealing home: Vulnerability, Risk, and the Life and Scholarship of Nick Trujillo” at this year’s (2013) Annual Summit of Communication and Sport.
