Welcome to my online portfolio! My name is Erin R. McCoy and I am an Associate Professor of English & Interdisciplinary Studies and Program Coordinator of the Interdisciplinary Studies degree at the University of South Carolina Beaufort.
My forthcoming book, tentatively titled Tour of War, about the legacy and international cultural history of the Vietnam War, is under contract with McFarland Publishers.
For more information regarding my academic and pedagogical work, check out my current publications and my curriculum vitae. You can also bypass all that and hear me talk about the Vietnam War (and music) on the Vietnam Veteran News Podcast, episode #1455.
If you’ve come here for teaching materials, I invite you to use and manipulate the pedagogical information provided on this website for your own course needs. I am re-working my sample lesson plans, but please check out my Cross-College/Classroom Blog Projects and “Choose Your Own Adventure” hypertext-narrative assignments. Most of my assignments are intended for those who enjoy (or would like to enjoy) incorporating technology into freshman composition classes. I also use Twitter and Prezi intermittently.
If you use one of my lesson plans, I’d love to hear how it went over, so please leave a comment or send me an email. Thanks for stopping by!
