Joseph P. Goodwin, Ph.D.

Joseph P. Goodwin, assistant director of the Career Center at Ball State University, is the author of More Man Than You'll Ever Be: Gay Folklore and Acculturation in Middle America (Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 1989), as well as numerous journal articles and encyclopedia entries on gay men's folklore and culture. He earned his Ph.D. and came out at In-diana University. His outsider status is secure through his role as a founding member of the American Folklore Society's Gay and Lesbian Folklore Section, although his insider status is evident through his term on the AFS Executive Board and various AFS committees, as well as his "Careers" column in AFSNews. He is clearly inside-out, at least as a folklorist. His most recent work, "Working Out: Career Issues of Gay Men and Lesbians," is out for possible inclusion in a career-planning journal.
