Overview

Andrea Krafft is Assistant Director of the Writing and Communication Program. Her research about the intersections between speculative fiction and post-World War II domesticity appears in Shirley Jackson: Influences and Confluences and in the forthcoming Critical Insights: Ray Bradbury. More recently, she has been exploring how science fiction informs the future of composition pedagogy and STEM education, which she presented about at the Council of Writing Program Administrators national conference. She has taught various classes about science fiction including Multimodal Mars (spring 2016), Discovering Dune (spring 2017), and, during fall 2017, an honors section of English 1102 about the technological singularity featuring an embedded astrobiologist. She strives to create a classroom in which students become not only well-trained communicators but also conscientious participants in the ever-evolving world of scientific and technological innovation.
