  James R. Andrews

Professor Emeritus of Communication and Culture, American Studies, and Victorian Studies
Ph.D., The Pennsylvania State University, 1966

Formerly chair of IU's Department of Communication and Culture for 15 years, James Andrews has received several teaching awards, both university-wide and national, as well as national awards for his research. He is interested in British and U.S. public discourse, examining such questions as the role of rhetoric in the shaping of national identity, presidential rhetoric, and the interaction of imperialism and rhetoric. His numerous books and articles reflect his commitment both to research and to teaching, and Houghton-Mifflin has just published a new edition of his co-authored textbook on public speaking. Professor Andrews taught at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and at Columbia University before coming to IU.
