I teach undergraduate and graduate courses on rhetoric, social movements, political communication, and citizenship in the Department of Communication at Texas A&M University.
I've written books on the ways that we have thought about the power of average citizens and the way that we image presidents to be heroic. I'm currently writing a book on the 2016 election.
