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 undergraduate 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.

In my own writing, after spending 12 years working on scientific discourse, I have recently migrated to the world 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 intrepid 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, a home, school, and clinic in Hanoi, Vietnam, that serves approximately 120 children living with moderate to severe disabilities owing to Agent Orange.
