Dr. Joseph Little

Associate Professor of English and Director of WRT 100

Office Location:
Dunleavy Hall, Room 351


A member of the English Department since 2005, I teach courses in writing while directing the first-year writing program for the university. My courses include Thinking and Writing, Business Communication, Ethnography and Travel Writing, Science Writing, Teaching Composition, and Writing and Well-Being.

As a writer, I work primarily in the genre of travel writing to explore issues of religion, poverty, and war. A secondary interest of mine is the emerging field of information and communication technologies for development (ICT4D). My most recent work, Letters from the Other Side of Silence, will be published by Homebound Publications in 2017.

Writing aside, every March I lead a dozen students on the Great Guatemalan Adventure, an eight-day backpacking trip in the highlands of Guatemala. I also serve on the board of the Friendship Village, an orphanage in Vietnam that serves approximately 120 children living with moderate to severe disabilities owing to Agent Orange.
