Ph.D. Candidate (ABD), American Studies
Born and raised in the arid mountain of the San Luis Valley, I spent my childhood with my loving and supportive family. Growing up Chicano cultivated an ethos of seeking tranquility, humility, sustainability, and communalism. There is nothing more fascinating than being part of the seasons' change, requiring adaptive lifeways and fluid aesthetics. In my free time I like to garden, play guitar and accordion, as well as spending time with my miniature chihuahua Mr. Chato.
Joseph is teaching CES 260, Race and Racism in U.S. Popular Culture, for fall 2014.
