Joshua P. Preston

My name is Joshua Preston and I’m from Montevideo, Minnesota. I’m a graduate of the University of Minnesota Morris (Political Science and History) and currently a research fellow at Baylor College of Medicine’s Initiative on Neuroscience and Law. There I work on big data “Criminal Policy Informatics” and staff The Journal of Science and Law. I also write fiction and my book reviews and poems have appeared in The Humanist, MAYDAY Magazine, and The Rain Taxi Review of Books.

While at the University of Minnesota, I served as chairman of the Student Senate and later as a representative to the Board of Regents (2012-2013). At that time I was actively involved in state politics and elected to the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party’s State Executive Committee (2012-2014). In my capacity as an artist and activist, since 2009 I’ve been honored to speak at multiple conferences on rural youth identity and rural arts and culture.
