S. Parry-Giles Publishes Chapter on Citizenship and '04 Election

Professor and Director of Graduate Studies Shawn J. Parry-Giles is the author of a chapter in the new book Rhetoric & Democracy: Pedagogical and Political Practices, published in 2008 by the Michigan State University Press. The book is edited by Todd F. McDorman and David M. Timmerman.

Parry-Giles's chapter, entitled "Constituting Presidentiality and U.S. Citizenship in Campaign 2004: NASCAR Dads, Security Moms, and Single Women Voters" argues that the presidential campaign rhetoric of 2004 constituted a white, gendered citizenry with little deliberative role in the democracy of the United States. Her analysis, in the words of the book's editors "allows us to see how citizens were constituted in the political campaign, with this constitution offering an extremely narrow perspective on political engagement--essentially reducing it to the act of voting."
