Students presented their work at the Knight Write Showcase. What is humanity's most important invention? Some might say vaccines, electricity or the internet. But each of those technologies was the result of thousands of years' worth of communication through language. Language is how we come to understand the world and ourselves. Though often invisible, it is the building block of human civilization. Knights Write Showcase was created by the Department of Writing and Rhetoric to put a spotlight on how central language is to our lives: To celebrate the diverse ways we use language and literacy at the university and beyond. This year's Knights Write Showcase will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 8, and Thursday, Feb. 9, in the Pegasus Grand Ballroom from 9:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. Attendees can view poster presentations, frequent panels and hear from students in the First-Year Writing Program , the Writing Across the Curriculum Program , the University Writing Center as well as undergraduates and graduates in the Department of Writing and Rhetoric. Student presenters and keynote speakers will discuss their research and perspectives on the topics of language and literacy. Kicking off the showcase will be a keynote address from Laura Gonzalez '11MA on how her training in writing and rhetoric at UCF helped her develop a career researching the importance of language diversity in classrooms, workplaces and communities. Jeff Moore, dean of the College of Arts and Humanities , will close […](Photo courtesy of the UCF College of Arts and Humanities)
