James J Kimble

James J. Kimble, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Communication

College of Communication and the Arts


Jim Kimble's expertise includes domestic propaganda, rhetorical studies, and presidential discourse.

Most of my scholarship involves domestic propaganda and the way it helps to construct a rhetorical community even as it fosters depictions of an enemy or Other. The discourse of the World War II home front draws most of my attention, although I have also published research on the Civil War era and the Cold War.
