Joseph Bartolotta is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of English Literature & Language at the University of New Mexico. He holds a PhD from the University of Minnesota in Rhetoric and Scientific and Technical Communication. His dissertation, “Laboring Literacy: Rhetoric, Language, and Sponsors of Literacy in Workers’ Education in the International Ladies Garment Workers’ Union, 1914-1939,” examines how sponsors of literacy influenced the literacy curriculum, how literacy became defined by wider rhetorical concerns of labor and social movements of the early 20th century, and how immigrant student literacy needs were instantiated in the program. Dr. Bartolotta is also the Director of the Professional Writing Internship Program
