Dr. Joshua McMullen hails from East-Central Ohio. McMullen appreciates Regent's focus on education of the whole person. He values Regent's educational environment in which students and faculty can form sustained relationships and where a teacher/mentor can draw upon the strengths, experiences and diverse backgrounds of individual students to help them impact the world.
McMullen's research focuses on cultural and religious history of the United States. His book, Under the Big Top: Big Tent Revivalism and American Culture (Oxford, 2015), focuses on the interaction between big tent revivalism and the transition from a Victorian to a Consumer culture in the United States at the turn of the 20th century. His current work focuses on the American identity crisis of the Great Depression. McMullen and his family reside in Virginia Beach.
