PhD expected May 2013. Dissertation: Landscapes of Belonging: Cuban Ethnicity, Class, and Community. Joshua's dissertation research utilizes comparative and historical methods as well as narrative analysis to explore how Cubans in different locations define their communities and sense of belonging, and how collective memory and public narratives in those communities are shaped by historically specific macro-economic and political conditions. Additionally, Joshua's research explores the way in which discourses of globalization and development affect our interpretations of contemporary events, an example of which can be found in his most recent publication entitled, "The Cracks in the Walls: Earthquakes, Patriarchy, and Transnational Capital in Haitian Free Trade Zones."
