About… Dr. Starr Hoffman
I’m a Texas-bred academic librarian (recently relocated to NYC) who spent 2012 in Kharkov, Ukraine finishing my PhD in Higher Education. I blog about academia, books, expat life, geekery, and travel.
I’ve been a librarian, department head, muralist, computer lab tutor, and disillusioned fine art student. When not researching, I’m traveling, writing, photographing, scuba diving, cooking, reading, knitting, painting, and discovering new hobbies with my husband. My dissertation studied the relationship between the training, educational attainment, and leadership traits of academic library deans.
This website hosts both my blog and my online portfolio (where you can view my experience, education, professional development, and other activities).
