Joshua Lindenbaum, Ph.D., is new to GMUK; however, he’s been working in education for over a decade. The desire to become a professor arrived when he was just 18-years-old, witnessing the transformative and broadening power of critical thinking and analytical interrogation in higher ed. The aforementioned skills he gained can help one navigate life, and Dr. Lindenbaum wanted to help others gain those skills as well. This would be his small contribution to society. On the publishing landscape, his poetry has appeared in several magazines and journals: Bangalore Review, Drunk Monkeys, West Texas Literary Review, Mistake House, Typishly, and elsewhere. He knows experientially and empirically how writing can help one navigate the human condition and looks forward to assisting students in expressing, learning, and thinking via the pen and/or keyboard.
