Josh studies corporate rhetoric, including sponsorships, advertising, sports communication, public relations, and “outlaw” discourses that break the rules of discourse to get results.  He is also interested in teaching and assessing writing.

 

His favorite part of being a professor, though, is teaching undergraduates.

 

Outside the university, he presents workshops in issue management, presentation skills, and listening.
