Joseph is a doctorate candidate at the Department of Religions and Cultures, at Concordia University. His doctoral dissertation uses a post-colonial lens to examine how and why early Christian discourse and narratives (i.e. first and second century CE) employed slavery-metaphors as rhetorical and theological device. Prior to joining the doctoral program, he completed his bachelor and master degree at Université de Montréal. As a researcher, he is passionate about post-colonial theories, migration and minority studies, readings from the margin, as well as religious language in politics.
