John Harkey, Rachel Dean-Ruzicka and Aaron Kashtan Teach the 20th Century

Colloquium Flyer Final


The Special Events Committee of the Writing and Communication program invites all LMC faculty and administrators to the first of our Fall 2013 events: “Teaching the 20th Century: A Colloquium on Digital Pedagogy and 20th Century Literature and Culture.”
On Tuesday, October 29th, from 11AM to 12PM, in Hall 102, three third-year Marion Brittain Postdoctoral Fellows will present on their 1101 and 1102 courses, their work in digital pedagogy, and their students’ work on 20th Century literature, culture, and rhetoric. The lineup will be:

  • “Escape/Experiment/Document: Looking at American Culture in the ’30s and Now.”  John Harkey, Ph.D
  •  “Why murder? Teaching True Crime in English 1101.” Rachel Dean-Ruzicka, Ph.D
  • “Students Versus Zombies: Using The Walking Dead to Teach Transmedia Storytelling.” Aaron Kashtan, Ph.D

This promises to be an exciting event, and we hope that you will come to support our Brittain Fellows as they share their experiences in the digital humanities.

About Christine Hoffmann

Christine Hoffmann (PhD University of Arkansas, MFA Art Institute of Chicago) studies the shifting standards for credibility and utility that develop inside post-Gutenberg and post-digital rhetorical environments. Her scholarly work has been published in College Literature, the CEA Critic, PLL, the CEA Forum and, somewhat randomly, Slayage: the Online Journal of Buffy Studies. A few short stories can be found in Make magazine, Eclectica and Loose Change. She also blogs regularly on TECHStyle, the forum for digital pedagogy and research by the Georgia Tech Brittain Fellows. Christine looks forward to connecting the teaching of multimodal composition to her research into rhetorics of struggle, cultures of collecting, and the advantages of copious expression.
