Shannon Bow O'Brien

1 POSTS 0 COMMENTS
Shannon Bow O'Brien is a presidency scholar who focuses upon rhetoric. My first book looks at the locations of presidential speeches. In other words, do location choices help better inform us about priorities and decisions of administrations. My forthcoming book looks at how Donald Trump uses professional wrestling language in the presidency to help sway the public. He uses wrestling tactics to craft manufactured realities that emphasize his worldview. I teach American Politics, American Presidency, Social Movements, Politics and Film, and Urban Politics. My work tends to have a strong American Political Development vibe (simply put, politics and history) with a focus upon how government and policy are impacted by choices. I'm very interested in how individuals impact systems.
