Professor Emeritus Goff, nationally published

March 2013: “Associate Prof. Victoria Goff (Communication and History) is one of several nationally recognized journalism professors whose work is included in Editing Across Media: Content and Process for Print and Online Publication, which will be released this month. Goff, who has been the editor of the award-winning history magazine Voyageur for 19 years and the adviser of the Fourth Estate student newspaper, wrote a chapter that pulled the book’s other chapters together in a final project—editing a magazine.”

Goff’s interest in both communication and history, along with global studies and ethnic influences, demonstrates the value of considering multiple disciplines in the study of Hispanic-American Journalism. Furthermore, Goff has involved student research assistants in her work, offering students a hands-on research experience.
