Dr. Lindsay Hoffman joined
the faculty of the Department of Communication at the University of
Delaware in September 2007 after receiving her Ph.D. from The Ohio
State University. Her research examines how citizens use internet
technology to become engaged with politics and their communities. She
also studies individual and contextual effects of media on individuals'
perceptions of public opinion; the effects of viewing political satire on
knowledge and participation; social capital and communication; and
factors leading to public-affairs news use.
Dr. Hoffman's research is
theoretically grounded in political communication, mass communication,
and public opinion. Her work emphasizes both the social circumstances
and psychological predispositions that influence individual media uses
and effects. Her research also examines the components of mediated
messages that encourage individuals to participate in -- or distance
themselves from -- political activities such as voting, news viewing, or
simply expressing opinion.
Dr. Hoffman holds a joint appointment in the Department of Political Science and International Relations, and is the Associate Director of the Center for Political Communication. She is also the Director of the annual National Agenda
Speaker and Film Series. She teaches courses in political
communication, politics and technology, media effects, and research
