Katherine E. Hoffman is Director of the Middle East and North African Studies Program. She is a linguistic, sociocultural, and legal anthropologist, who specializes in the relationship between expressive culture, ethnicity, law, history, and political economy Her research explores this nexus primarily in North Africa, and especially Morocco, from the late 19th c. to the present, particularly as it has been shaped by the processes of French colonialism, anti-imperialism, nationalism, and postnationalism.  Her book We Share Walls: Language, Land and Gender in Berber Morocco (2008, Wiley-Blackwell) is an ethnographic account of the ways in which political economy and migration have shaped rural ethnolinguistic repertoires in both talk and song, and in Arabic and Tashelhit Berber languages, among the Ishelhin Berbers of southwestern Morocco. 

A second book currently being drafted, Mirror of the Soul: Language, Islam, and Law in French Native Policy of Morocco (1912-1956), considers the language ideologies underpinning French colonial administration of rural Morocco.  It argues that notions about the inherent interrelationship between language, law, religion and morality had consequences for the development of French Native Policy (politique indigène), Moroccan nationalism, and more recently, contemporary struggles around Amazigh (Berber) linguistic and cultural rights. Of particular interest in this project are the Berber customary courts (tribunaux coutumiers) that not only elicited nationalist polemic but also generated massive amounts of labor from Protectorate officials and their North African employees.  Relevant to this project is Dr. Hoffman’s participation in the working group, “Citoyennetés locales au Maghreb: Les perspectives de la longue durée (Local citizenships in North Africa: Long-term perspectives),” directed by Isabelle Grangaud at the Institut de Recherche sur le Maghreb Contemporain (IRMC) and the Centre National de la Recherché Scientifique (CNRS), in Tunis.

With historian Susan Gilson Miller of Harvard University, Hoffman is co-editor of the interdisciplinary volume Berbers and Others: Beyond Tribe and Nation in the Maghrib (Indiana University Press, 2010).

Hoffman's further research on southern Tunisia and Western Libya, with NSF funding, is called Revolution’s Refugees.  It examines the role of ethnicity in the integration of populations displaced by political violence into the country of first asylum, as well as the ways in which transnational ethnic identity may facilitate refugee assimilation in the Global South.  Simultaneously, the project considers the effects of the Arab Spring revolutions on minority populations, taking as a case study the Amazigh (Berber) populations of Libya and Tunisia.  The project focuses on the women and the elderly who are central, albeit overlooked, actors in the construction and maintenance of local and transnational ethnic identities.  The informal settlement of Libyan refugees from the Nafusa mountains and Nalut into Tunisia – in rural community-volunteered housing and private Tunisian homes – meant that laypeople rather than aid workers managed much of the integration of this displaced population.  Refugees from western Libya and their southern Tunisian hosts were Imazighen (Berbers), speaking the Tamazight language and sharing both customs and longstanding discrimination by their respective states.  

Regimes of Care: Islamic Guardianship and the Transnational Adoption of Muslim Children is Dr. Hoffman’s most recent research, which looks at the transnational migration of Muslim children to Europe and the United States, whether through adoption or war, and especially the regimes of care available to abandoned and orphaned Muslim children taken into kafala arrangements (Islamic guardianship). This project considers human rights frameworks, conflicts in international private law, and political-legal ideologies pertaining to the Western states that become home to these children. Additionally, it considers the ways in which state and transnational entities (especially the European Court of Human Rights and the United Nations) conceive of and produce discourse around intentional families formed through processes other than biological procreation between different-sex parents.  This project links up to research on the state monitoring of surrogacy, sperm donation, same-sex marriage and adoption, and monoparental family-formation. During the 2016-2017 academic year, Dr. Hoffman is developing this project while on leave from Northwestern with a fellowship from the Institute for Advanced Study in Lyon (the Collegium de Lyon), where she is affiliated with the Université de Lyon through its Center for Critical Legal Studies. She is a Morocco expert with the Working Group on Child Law in Muslim Countries, organized by the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law in Hamburg, Germany.

Dr. Hoffman is particularly keen to advise graduate students whose interests bring together language and law, regardless of world region.

Hoffman has been awarded the American Council of Learned Societies’ Charles A. Ryskamp Research Fellowship and a National Endowment for the Humanities Faculty Fellowship, and has received fellowships from the National Science Foundation’s RAPID program, the Wenner-Gren Foundation, two divisions of the Social Science Research Council, the Fulbright-IIE, and the American Institute for Maghrib Studies.  In Spring 2007, Hoffman was a resident fellow at the Camargo Foundation in Cassis, France, and during the 2011-12 academic year, she was a fellow at Northwestern's Kaplan Institute for the Humanities. She was awarded a EURIAS Senior Fellowship to spend the 2012-13 academic year at the Institute for Advanced Study in Nantes. She holds a fellowship with the Institute for Advanced Study in Lyon (the Collegium) for the 2016-2017 academic year. She has served on the editorial boards of the Oxford Bibliographies in Anthropology, the Journal of Linguistic Anthropology and American Anthropologist. Hoffman conducts field research in Tashelhit Berber, Moroccan Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic, and French. 

In addition to her scholarly work, since the early 1990s, Hoffman has worked extensively on visual and print media projects, and responsible tourism, to increase understanding of Muslim populations.  She has consulted for National Geographic Magazine and served as the expert on National Geographic Expedition's Moroccan Odyssey.  She has also researched for numerous documentary film projects in Morocco and in Washington, DC.  She authored the Introduction and several chapters of the Fodor’s Morocco first travel guide edition (New York: Random House, 2000).  Applying her ethnographic concerns with gender and minority language to governmental policy, Hoffman consulted on a project to raise rural Moroccan girls’ completion of primary school, an initiative co-funded by AMIDEAST and the Moroccan Ministry of Education, in which she advocated for greater attention to native language in the classroom as well as basic sanitary facilities, both crucial to parental choices to remove girls from primary school.  Whether in policy evaluation, popular media, or scholarly work, Hoffman is committed to demonstrating the continued relevance—even centrality—of rural life to local, national, and global shifts.

                "FSU rededicates Hoffman Teaching Lab-Arts and Sciences"

Members of the Florida State University and College of Arts and Sciences communities gathered Wednesday to celebrate the 86-year relationship between the university and distinguished alumna and chemistry faculty emerita Kitty Hoffman with a rededication of the Katherine B. Hoffman Teaching Laboratory.

“Kitty was a valuable mentor to students and faculty members alike during her time at Florida State and continues to serve the community and FSU in retirement. She’s a board member for the FSU Alumni Association, a trustee for the FSU Foundation and a member of the College of Arts and Sciences Leadership Council,” said Sam Huckaba, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, in his opening remarks. “She is truly an outstanding representative of Florida State University.”

The building, which opened in 1969 and was dedicated to Hoffman in 1984, is set to undergo renovations that will reconfigure spaces to encourage a more collaborative approach to teaching and learning and enhance eLearning capabilities. The 72,000-plus square-foot building is currently home to lab and classroom spaces for chemistry, biochemistry, and other arts and sciences departments.

“This is a huge investment in STEM education and research at Florida State,” said FSU Provost Sally McRorie. “A lot has happened at FSU when it comes to STEM education and research. We’re lucky to have faculty and staff just as excited about these investments as we are and who are committed to ensuring our students have an unparalleled educational experience.”

Investments such as the Hoffman Teaching Lab renovations, along with the new Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences building, are a critical part of the university’s plan to push Florida State into the top 25 public universities in the U.S. and make it an even more attractive place for students to study and to begin their STEM-based careers, McRorie said.
