Alumna Rosenberger To Discuss “Identity Evolution Abroad”

Posted on 11/5/2014 9:43:51 AM

2014 IUP Young Alumni Achievement Award recipient Kali Rosenberger (English immersion teacher curriculum design consultant, Lenguatec/Escuela Bellavista International School in Maracaibo, Venezuela) will give a presentation and respond to questions on the topic “Identity Evolution Abroad.”

The program, open to faculty, students, and administrators, will take place on Monday, November 10, 2014, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in the HUB Susquehanna Room.

Rosenberger explains: “Since graduating from IUP in 2009, I’ve lived, worked, and grown up in El Salvador, Ecuador, Venezuela, and the Dominican Republic. In this talk, I’d like to share my experience of the incomparable identity evolution that one experiences while living and working in different cultural settings. My own identity evolution abroad has been an empowering, yet at times terrifying, transformation from cultural outsider to insider to outsider again. I wish to share the struggle and value of this cycle of teaching and learning—of feeling alone and feeling home.”

Refreshments will be served. Students are strongly encouraged to attend.
