Michelle Obama: First Lady, American Rhetor is an edited anthology that explores the persona and speech-making of the country’s first African American first lady. The result of these thought-provoking essays is an interdisciplinary text that explores the First Lady from a rhetorical and cultural point of view. Authors analyze her Democratic National Convention speeches, her brand as First Lady, her communication from her latest trip to Africa, her agenda rhetoric in Let’s Move! and Reach Higher, and her coming out as a Black feminist intellectual when she spoke at Maya Angelou’s memorial service. Readers will recognize Michelle Obama as a rhetor of our times—a woman who influences America at the intersections of gender, race, and class and who is representative of what women are today.

At home or at the podium, the First Lady is uniquely poised to serve as advisor, confidant, and campaigner, with the power to shape American political and social conversation. At first blush, First Ladies Michelle Obama and Melania Trump appear categorically different from each other; however, as women rising from humble origins to pursue their ambitions and support their husbands, the two have more in common than one might think. In Melania & Michelle: First Ladies in a New Era, author Tammy R. Vigil provides a compelling account of our modern first ladies, exploring how each woman has crafted her public image and used her platform to influence the country, while also serving as a paragon of fashion and American womanhood. Both women face constant scrutiny and comparison—from their degrees of political activism to their cookie recipes—and have garnered support as well as criticism. From their full lives pre-nomination to their attitudes while occupying the White House, Vigil builds careful and thoughtful portraits of Melania Trump and Michelle Obama that provide a new appreciation for how these women, and the first ladies that came before them, have shaped our country.

Applies a variety of scholarly approaches to analyze the long-term impact of President Obama as a leader and policymaker. Historic, intriguing, and important in so many ways, the Obama presidency will be studied by scholars and students for years to come. With the rise in hyperpartisanship, legislative gridlock, political dysfunction, “fake news,” and other negative trends, it is imperative that academicians weigh in with a rigorous assessment of Obama’s presidency. This volume applies a variety of scholarly approaches to analyze the impact of Obama as a leader and policymaker. Scholars from disciplines such as political science, history, environmental science, economics, and communication come together to provide an interdisciplinary and wide-ranging appraisal of the president. Across the varied chapters, Obama’s leadership is central to understanding the success or failure of his policies and initiatives. The president’s decisions and actions are also assessed against the constraints and possibilities created by the modern US political system, rapid changes in technology and society, and shifting patterns in international relations. The result is a book that covers executive leadership, administration, domestic issues, foreign and national security policy, and more, to present a comprehensive review of the Obama legacy.

Developing Women Leaders in the Academy through Enhanced Communication Strategies explores the experiences, strategies, and triumphs of women who have attained leadership roles within the academy as well as the shortfalls, disappointments, and battle scars many women leaders have experienced in their quest to lead. Clear direction, focused strategies, and enhanced communication are necessary to increase the ever-growing number of women in leadership positions in the academy. Contributions to this book discuss the ways in which these concepts have been employed to transcend the "academic ceiling" by creating mentoring networks for women, training programs, and other "ladders of ascension," encouraging future leaders to be more assertive, self-assured, and strategic within the academic terrain. Scholars of communication, education, and women's studies will find this volume particularly useful.

Food Blogs, Postfeminism, and the Communication of Expertise: Digital Domestics examines how and why women use blogs to build successful digital brands in the arena of domestic food preparation, purchase, and consumption. Food blogging is big business, and cooking dinner has transformed from domestic drudgery into creative personal expression. What impact is all this discourse about food, cooking, and eating having on the women who create and consume these conversations? Alane L. Presswood examines how and why women use blogs to build successful digital brands in the arena of domestic food preparation, purchase, and consumption. The relationships between individual brands, reader communities, and sociocultural trends are clarified via a systematic exploration of the strategies employed to create bonded, affective relationships on social media platforms. These food bloggers and their audiences illustrate how the capabilities of networked digital platforms both enable and constrain women as public communicators in ways that were impossible in previous media forms and how women relate to domesticity in a postfeminist American media culture. Scholars of communication, media studies, gender studies, and food studies will find this book particularly useful.
