Dissertation: “Institutionalized Speech: The Presidency and the Industrial Sphere”

 

I investigate how a century of political rhetoric created tangible structures of support for the domestic auto industry in the United States. What I term institutionalized speech has served as a justificatory framework that adds nuance to more straightforward economic arguments to protect and save the industry. Drawing on rhetorical approaches to identity construction and an historical institutionalism understanding of presidential action as situated in political time, I argue that the institutionalization of campaign speech has real but understudied implications for presidential rhetoric, economics and governance.
