Visiting Lecturer, English
IU Department of English
Josh Hasler is a Visiting Lecturer in IU’s Department of English. He has degrees in Religious Studies (PhD) and Theological Studies (M.T.S.) from Boston University as well as a B.A. in philosophy from Gordon College. An expatriate of Colorado, Josh enjoys hiking, running, and fly fishing—a hobby that has proven especially safe for fish. His interests in religion, philosophy, and social theory are broad and stem from a general fascination with people and their weird, scary, and beautiful ideas. Josh’s specific research has focused on ritual rhetoric in American literature, focusing especially on novels by Cormac McCarthy and Herman Melville. He has taught courses in analytical writing (including W131 and W170 at IU), theological writing, mysticism, and ethics. Hasler teaches LAMP M-201 “Arts of Communication” and LAMP M-301 "Evidence, Analysis, and Ways of Knowing" for the Management + Human Organization major.
