Jessica Ghilani, associate professor of communication at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, was selected by the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum as the 2020 Aviation Space Writers Foundation Award Winner.
The award is offered in even numbered years and carries with it a $5,000 grant to support research on aerospace topics. Additional details are available on the website.
Ghilani's project, "Advertising Military Innovation: Technological Visualizations in American Military Recruitment," will result in a book chapter to be included a manuscript she is writing. She intends to use the funds to conduct research at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center annex of the National Air and Space Museum.
