Dr. Lundberg's current research focuses on theories of the public as a social and discursive form, and on the animating principles for public discourses and identities. His book, Lacan in Public: Psychoanalysis and the Science of Rhetoric, University of Alabama Press (2012) works through the implications of Jacques Lacan's psychoanalysis for thinking the rhetorical character of publics as social formations and of the public discourses that circulate within them. He has also written a number pieces that unpack forms of discourse constituting specific publics, with special attention to the intersection between publics and religious discourse in Islam and Evangelical Christianity. At the level of specific practices of public discourse and pedagogy, Dr. Lundberg's work focuses on rhetorical theory, and on debate and public speaking as critical democratic forms. He has authored textbooks relating to rhetoric, public speaking, and public deliberation, including a Public Speaking textbook with Cengage Learning titled Public Speaking: Choices and Responsibility (2014) and The Essential Guide to Rhetoric (Bedford St. Martins, 2007).
