Joe’s research routinely pulls together strains of psychoanalytic theory, disability studies, and composition theory. His academic specializations are in twentieth and twenty-first century American literature with a particular focus on addiction narratives.
Since completing his Ph.D., Joe has published on a variety of popular and academic topics, ranging from examinations of indie music gender politics to higher education employment ethics. He also nursed a several-years-long fascination with the television series Breaking Bad, at one point writing and publishing approximately 9,200 words on the series for PopMatters.
Currently, Joe is preparing a project on the intersection of disability and athletics. He calls dibs on the title “On the DL: Athletes, Athletics, and Disability.” Joe is also a budding web developer, and he is happy to bring you this very website, as well as websites for Disability Support Services at The George Washington University and for Coach Wilson Komen of Coach Kiprunning.
