Joseph M. Meyer 

Degrees: Ph.D. from University of Arkansas

Brief Bio: Joe received his Ph.D. in early American literature from the University of Arkansas. His research is primarily concerned with biblical hermeneutics, the epic hero, and digital Humanities. In his WCI classes, Joe often brings in early American texts in order to show how American culture has evolved—and how these same motifs from texts like the captivity narrative of Mary Rowlandson, Frederick Douglass's autobiography, and Moby-Dick continue to shape the movements of American culture to this day.
