Featuring the Keynote Address "Building Impactful Futures through Writing, Rhetoric, and Community: Stories from a UCF Alumna" by Dr. Laura Gonzales’09’11MA

Keynote Address Description: In this talk, Dr. Gonzales will tell stories and share research to illustrate how her training in Writing and Rhetoric at UCF helped her develop a career focused on highlighting the importance of language diversity in classrooms, workplaces, and communities. Going to school and teaching in Florida, a state that benefits greatly from immigration and language diversity, can provide students at multiple levels with important opportunities to shape communication and build their careers. Dr. Gonzales will share her journey from moving to Orlando as an immigrant from Bolivia, to attending UCF for her BA and MA degrees, to teaching amazing UCF students, to returning to Florida as a professor. She will discuss how Writing and Rhetoric can prepare students and professionals to build justice-driven, impactful futures. 

This is event is hosted by the Department of Writing and Rhetoric, which contributes a vertical writing curriculum and experience for all UCF students, from first year to graduate students, and supports a vibrant writing culture by supporting faculty across UCF in the teaching of writing.
