About Joseph

I earned a PhD in Italian from Indiana University, but have also studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and the University of Bologna, Italy.

I have taught for a number of years at the university level and have also worked as a translator (both oral and written). I've led student groups to Italy.

In addition to coming from an Italian-American family, I have a thorough knowledge of the language, the country, the culture, the history and the people of Italy. As a professor of Italian, I received numerous teaching awards and have an outstanding sense of humor.

If that's not Italian enough, I play the accordion and host a weekly radio show on WIOX FM. We feature music of irrational exuberance, of uneven quality and of questionable taste--but it does have a beat and you can dance to it--late night accordion music for consenting adults.
