Joyce Kinkead

Joyce Kinkead is Professor of English, Associate Vice President for Research, and Associate Dean of the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences at Utah State University, where she also directed the writing program for eight years.  Former editor of The Writing Center Journal, she is the author of 

  • A Schoolmarm All My Life: Personal Narratives from Frontier Utah, 

  • Literary Utah, 

  • Writing Centers in Context: Twelve Case Studies, and 

  • Houghton Mifflin English, 9-12.   

As a native Missourian, she first encountered Harold Bell Wright through the annual pageant presentation of The Shepherd of the Hills, held near Branson.  Her master's thesis centered on this novel.  Intrigued by Wright's social consciousness and his amazing popularity in the early twentieth century, she focused her doctoral research on the complete works, finding Wright to be a muckraker, akin to Upton Sinclair.  In contrast to Sinclair's exposť of the meat-packing industry, Wright set about examining the hypocrisy of organized religion, which led him to promote an ethic of religious, ethnic, and gender equality.   

After graduation from Texas A&M-Commerce (1979), a twist of fate found her teaching at Pittsburg State University in Kansas, the same town where Wright wrote That Printer of Udell's.  She authored two further articles on Wright:  "The Western Sermons of Harold Bell Wright," Journal of American Culture, Fall 1984, and "Harold Bell Wright:  The Man Who Went Away," Little Balkans Review, Fall 1981.   

Kinkead moved to Utah State University in 1982.  She has been a Fulbright Scholar to Sweden (1987) and Cyprus (1996) and was an American Council on Education Fellow (1999-2000).

Kinkead's comments found on this web site are taken from her 1979 doctoral dissertation.  To start reading that dissertation from the beginning click on Kinkead in the In Depth section of this Web site.
