Caleb González is a first-year PhD student specializing in rhetoric, composition and literacy. His interests in multilingual writing studies, composition pedagogy, visual rhetoric, digital media, writing across the curriculum and creative nonfiction stem from his experience in cross-disciplinary work within the humanities. He has served as an associate director for the 2020 International Writing Across the Curriculum Conference (IWAC) and, currently, is an editorial board member of the WAC (Writing Across the Curriculum) Clearinghouse.
Caleb has presented research situated within community literacies at UMass-Amherst’s Graduate History Association Conference. His research has touched on collaborative authorship approaches in bilingual digital storytelling contexts for young readers who speak contemporary Yucatec Maya and/or Spanish.
His creative work has appeared in magazines such as Eclectica, InTravel and Wanderlust-Journal. Additionally, he has explored the genre of travel writing through autoethnographic frameworks of identity, family history, globalization, movement and migrancy. His work on travel writing and autoethnography is forthcoming in a special issue of TEXT: Journal of Writing Courses published by the Australasian Association of Writing Programs. The special issue is titled "Re-Mapping Travel Writing in the 21st Century," edited by Stefan Jatschka, Stephanie Green and Nigel Krauth. As a committed teacher-scholar, his interests are motivated by language diversity, social justice and antiracist pedagogy.
