​Dr. Jennifer Mercieca

Dr. Jennifer Mercieca is an historian of American political discourse. 

She is Associate Professor in the Department of Communication at Texas A&M University, Director of the Aggie Agora, and Vice-Chair of the Public Address Division of the National Communication Association.


I teach undergraduate and graduate courses on rhetoric, social movements, political communication, and citizenship in the Department of Communication at Texas A&M University.

My research focuses on the ways that we have thought about the power of average citizens, the way that we image presidents to be heroic, and how we think about the nation when we are in crisis, among other things.

I currently serve as Vice-Chair of the Public Address Division of NCA, on the Editorial Boards of The Quarterly Journal of Speech, Rhetoric Society Quarterly, and The Southern Communication Journal, and as Director of the Aggie Agora.
