Joshua M. Price

Professor and Chair



Joshua Price’s research interests include structural and institutional violence in the United States, incarceration, gender violence, critical race theory, and the role of translation in the colonization of the Americas. At present, he is following two lines of inquiry.

Since 2004, he has engaged in advocacy with and for currently and formerly incarcerated people in Broome County and across New York State. This takes the form of collective research, community-university collaboration, and solidarity work.

He also studies the role translation practices have played in the colonization of the Americas. He translates Latin American political and social philosophy and writes about the challenges this poses.
