​Dr. Jennifer Mercieca




I currently serve as Vice-Chair Elect of the Public Address Division of NCA, on the Editorial Boards of QJS and RSQ, and on the Steering Committee of Texas A&M's Strengthening Democracy Initiative. 

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 teach undergraduate and graduate courses on rhetoric, social movements, political communication, and citizenship.

Dr. Jennifer Mercieca is an historian of American political discourse. She is currently Associate Professor and Associate Department Head in the Department of Communication at Texas A&M University.
