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 recent 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 The Daily Show 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 Research Coordinator for Politics and Technology at the Center for Political Communication . She teaches courses in political communication, politics and technology, media effects, and research methods.
