Biography

Sarah Britt began her career at the iSchool when she was a master's candidate looking for a capstone project, and landed upon the idea of designing a new undergraduate course offering. Building upon a personal love of comics and manga, and fusing the subject matter with a backbone in information science, the undergraduate class "INF 327E: Comics, Graphic Novels, and Manga" was born. With the blessing of the amazing faculty and staff at the School of Information, that class turned from a project into a practice, with twenty students enrolling in the class the fall semester after Mrs. Britt graduated. After many tweaks and patient alterations, the course "Comics, Graphic Novels, and Manga" has now received the Cultural Diversity in the United States Flag from the Center for Skills & Flags at UTexas.

Today, Mrs. Britt is helping refine and update the course "INF 335C: Information in Cyberspace" with a team of fellow iSchool faculty, staff, and teaching assistants. Together, they're working to keep an ever evolving class ready to take on the new and interesting topics floating around cyberspace, keeping relevant and important to the students coming on board.
