The Office Hour, Chapter 18: Britt History 1 (The Future)

Toby takes over the podcast this week, in the first installment of a three-part series in which we address the past, present, and future of the Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellowship. In this episode, he interviews Brittain Fellow Halcyon Lawrence about her background and research in information design and experiences teaching technical communication as a Britt at Georgia Tech.

Check back in future weeks for parts two and three of the series, which will feature former Britts (and current faculty in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication) Lisa Yaszek and Andy Frazee.

The podcast can be played using the embedded player above or downloaded as an mp3 file.
