“We’re all professionals here:” Literacy Activism and Embodied Pedagogy

November 15, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Manoa Campus, Henke Hall 325

This presentation will draw on Maria Velazquez's experiences as a board member and volunteer for Lifting Voices, and talk about the role of embodiment in her pedagogical project. She will be paying particular attention to the roles of love and creativity in social justice work, the use of autobiographical writing in empowering youth, and literacy as a social process.

Maria Velazquez is a doctoral candidate at the University of Maryland, College Park. Her research interests include constructions of race, class, gender, and sexuality in contemporary media, as well as community-building and technology. She served on the board of Lifting Voices, a District of Columbia-based nonprofit that helped young people in DC discover the power of creative writing. She blogs for The Hathor Legacy (www.thehathorlegacy.com), a feminist pop culture blog, and recently received the Winnemore Dissertation Fellowship from the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities. She has also received a fellowship from the Consortium on Race, Gender, and Ethnicity's Interdisciplinary Scholars Program. Maria is a Ron Brown Scholar and an alumna of Smith College.
