Caleb, currently an associate professor at Okayama University, first became interested in this topic when a classmate gave a presentation on sarcasm in the Pragmatics course at PSU. With his humor attempts failing many times throughout his career teaching at universities in Korea and Japan, the topic never left him! He started teaching and researching humor instruction, using some of his ideas sparked from the class back in 2000. His other research interests include reading strategies and program administration, with articles published in journals such as TESOL Quarterly and TESOL Journal.
