Welcome to my online portfolio! My name is Erin R. McCoy and I am an Associate Professor of English & Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of South Carolina Beaufort.
If you’re interested in booking me for a speaking engagement and are in South Carolina, please consider going through the South Carolina Humanities Council Speakers Bureau, of which I am a member.
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 Season 3, episode 1 of Military Historians are People, Too! podcast (31 January 2023) and the 10 September 2022 Vietnam Veteran News podcast, episode #2387.
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!
