Hello! 👋

Joel Izlar (CC-BY-NC-ND 4.0+)

I’m Joel Izlar (for American visitors, my last name rhymes with the licorice candy Twizzler) and welcome to my personal site.

I must warn you that this site is pretty boring, so you might be better off looking at the 500 cutest animals or listening to some cool music from Tanzania.

About Me 📚

I’m a Dad, social scientist, educator, tea head, noise rock enthusiast, and manic depressive. My pronouns are he/him.

I have over a decade of experience as a community worker in the US Deep South where I’ve focused on ecosocial welfare, mutual aid, and justice. I now spend most my time researching, teaching, and publishing on ecosocial community work. I am currently a PhD Candidate in Social Work at the University of Georgia (US).

This site isn’t updated very often, but I’m somewhat active on Mastodon (@joelizlar), so join me there.

If you would like to support my work, you can contribute through Liberapay or BTC: bc1q5sjlhltwane9v2y7cystfu30zqlv37mz0eycwg
