Since graduating from UD in 2014, Joe Turner has been assistant professor of English at the University of Louisville, where he will serve as director of graduate studies for the English MA and PhD in rhetoric and composition beginning in January of 2019. He lives in Louisville with his wife, Heather (an alumna of UD's English MA), and his two dogs, Anya and Greta.
His research has been supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Folger Shakespeare Library, and the Kentucky Commonwealth Center for the Humanities and Culture. Two recent publications have grown directly from his time at UD. A 2018 article in Pedagogy documents his job market advising sessions for PhD students at Louisville, inspired by John Ernest's meetings at UD, as well as a chapter in Jim Dean's 2017 festschrift. Other articles have/will appear in Rhetorica (twice), Rhetoric Review, the Chaucer Review, and a forthcoming volume on cocktails, The Shaken and the Stirred (Indiana UP).
When not writing, Joe prefers to spend time in Kentucky's great parks, trying to keep up with the dogs.
