Leah Haught Co-Authors Research Guide
First-year Brittain Fellow Leah Haught’s co-authored article (with Thomas Hahn, University of Rochester) “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight”(SGGK) is now available online from Oxford Bibliographies in “British and Irish Literature.”
Designed as a research guide for students and scholars alike, the article combines features of an annotated bibliography with those of a highly specialized encyclopedia. Situating the poem’s reception within a long history of scholarly discourse on canonicity, the article argues that SGGK’s value for modern readers lies as much in its structural and thematic intricacies, which tantalize even the returning reader, as in its status as an historical artifact or, more specifically, a medieval poem.

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.
