Book Discussion: When the World Turned Upside Down: Words and Images on Politics, Culture, and the Unimaginable Events of 2019-2022

Thursday, April 6, 2023 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

UCF Pegasus Professor and nationally-syndicated columnist Luis Martínez-Fernández talks about the period of momentous — some unimaginable — developments in the United States and across the world written about in his latest book, When the World Turned Upside Down: Politics, Culture, and the Unimaginable Events of 2019- 2022. The collection of 65 essays and opinion columns stands at the intersection between opinion journalism and history, its individual components offering a dialogue between past and present. The talk will be accompanied by a visual presentation that includes a collection of editorial posters related to the book’s topics. A selection of those posters will be on display and he will sign copies of his book.

Each spring, UCF hosts a large-scale celebration of creativity at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. This year, UCF Celebrates the Arts explores the intersection of arts and technology, and showcases our students, faculty and alumni through dance, concerts, cabaret, lectures and discussions, film, chamber music, family-friendly events, visual arts and more. The festival has events and exhibits for all ages and interests, and with half of the events being free, is an ideal opportunity to try something new. Fantastic possibilities lie ahead at UCF Celebrates the Arts, April 2-15 at Dr. Phillips Center! Learn more at
