Mary E. Stuckey (Ph.D., University of Notre Dame) is the author of nine books focusing on presidential communication and rhetoric. Among her recent books are Jimmy Carter, Human Rights, and the National Agenda and Defining Americans: The Presidency and National Identity, both award-winning.  

Stuckey’s Kenneth Burke Lecture is entitled:  "The Art of Anger in US Presidential Elections."  She explains: “Anger is a useful tactic for political candidates. It helps convince voters that the candidate will fight for them and their causes. It can be equally useful in that it can drive voters away from another candidate. But anger doesn't attach voters to anything. What’s more, if anger is the only tune the candidate can play, emotions can spin out of control, damaging both the party and the political system.”
