Jocelyn Robinson, MA
Adjunct Faculty, Literature and Creative Writing
Jocelyn Robinson has worked in higher education and arts/cultural organizations for her entire professional life and has over two decades of experience, most of it at the director level. She holds a BA in Art History from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, a Master’s in Cultural Studies with a concentration in Race, Gender, and Identity from Antioch University, and a graduate certificate in Public History/Archives, also from Wright State. Her courses blend literature, film studies, African American studies, women’s studies, and other disciplines to provide students with challenging educational experiences that are relevant to their daily lived experiences. She incorporates critical cultural theory and her research interests in self-definition and identity into these offerings, and is adept at guiding diverse student populations through discussions of difference—and commonality. In addition, she is a skilled writing coach who assists essay writers in finding and expressing their authentic voices. An accomplished musician, gardener, equestrian, and social justice activist who has been engaged in the life of her community for over 50 years, she also teaches digital storytelling and is an award-winning independent public radio producer. Trained through the WYSO 91.3 FM Community Voices program, as the station’s first Archives Fellow she has created short documentary pieces using the station’s historical audio as source material. She is also engaged with national radio preservation efforts, and serves on the African American and Civil Rights Radio Caucus of the Radio Preservation Task Force of the Library of Congress Recorded Sound Preservation Board.
