I believe in the creative genius of the collective; hence; my approach to academic work is decidedly collaborative, interdisciplinary, and, in today’s world, distributed. I like to work with other faculty, students, designers, artists, healthcare providers, producers, and practitioners. On campus, I am committed to Frontera Retórica
, which is the Rhetoric Society of America’s UTEP chapter, and I work as an Associate Facilitator of the Social Justice Initiative
, housed in the Department of Communication. Off campus, I collaborate with local, national, and international organizations. Most recently, I have been collaborating on projects that combine in some way complexity theory, liberating structures, positive deviance
, serious games, and participatory design. For more information on projects, partnerships, and publications, I invite you to visit my blogluciadura.wordpress.com
or to e-mail me.
