Joshua Musicant

Graduate Assistant

Josh’s research interests center on questions of modernity and postmodernity, namely the changing human social experiences of these epochs. His work is theoretically focused and borrows on the modern theories of Marx and Durkheim, as well as the postmodern theories of Haraway and Baudrillard, amongst many others. Josh’s research draws from epistemological questions from his time working in Detroit Public Schools before enrolling at Rutgers. In Detroit, Josh facilitated and later administered a place-based environmental education program where he specialized in critical social studies education with high schoolers. Josh is in his second year at Rutgers. He graduated from the University of Michigan with honors in Women’s Studies and Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE). He is originally from the Jersey Shore.
