Reframing Multilingualism in the Classroom: A Poetic Celebration of Diversity
The World Englishes Committee invites you to a poetic celebration of diversity at Georgia Tech. Sponsored by Georgia Tech’s Writing and Communication Program, the event will feature international Georgia Tech students reading poetry from their home countries, both in the original language and in English, and conclude with a question and answer panel discussion of innovative teaching methods that incorporate the diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds of Georgia Tech students.
Please consider joining us for an event that celebrates the diverse perspectives that Georgia Tech’s international students bring to the classroom and to campus life and culture and that strives to build bridges between words and worlds.
When: Tuesday, April 8, 11am-12pm
Stephen C. Hall Building 102
Refreshments will be served.

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.
