Joseph Kinsella

Joseph Kinsella, Ph.D.

Assistant Academic Vice President, Center for Global Engagement

Dr. Kinsella has worked in international education since 1988, focusing his energies on the application of anthropological methodologies to intercultural and international learning. His doctoral research in anthropology explored the intersection of identity and aesthetics, and the processes of globalization that shape nationalist and “postcolonial” identities. Working with a group of contemporary sculptors in Zimbabwe between 1998 and 2004 Kinsella’s dissertation examined the production of material culture within neo-colonial economic and social structures. He has carried out fieldwork in Zimbabwe and Uganda, and as an undergraduate studied abroad in Florence, Italy.

As an applied anthropologist, Dr. Kinsella writes about the use of ethnographic methodology to understand and assess intercultural experiences. He worked and taught at DePaul University in Chicago for over 20 years, serving as the assistant director and later director of study abroad, and as the associate vice president of international programs before joining Gonzaga University.

Dr. Kinsella has designed and orchestrated programs in Botswana, China, Czech Republic, Hungary, India, Japan, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, and Zimbabwe.

Dr. Kinsella began at Gonzaga University in 2013.
