Dr. Courtney Hoffman is a Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she also serves as Assistant Director of the Writing and Communication Program. Her research focuses on the intersection of literary and writing studies, pedagogically focusing on social justice in writing courses and also concerned with eighteenth-century correspondence and culture. Her most recent work is “On the Shoulders of Giants: Natural Philosophy in First-Year Composition,” forthcoming in Writing STEAM: Composition, STEM, and a New Humanities (Routledge). Here she argues for 18th-century science texts can serve as models for transdisciplinary thinking in first year writing as a vehicle for multimodal communication. She is currently working on an essay advocating for designing first-year writing and technical communication classes around issues of social justice.
