Madelyn Flammia

Associate Professor of English, College of Arts and Humanities Highlighted Faculty Fall 2012

– Associate Professor, Department of English, College of Arts and Humanities
– UCF for 22 years (since 1990)
– PhD in English, Rutgers University, 1988

My research focuses on intercultural communication, global citizenship, and virtual work.  My co-authored book Intercultural Communication: A New Approach to International Relations and Global Challenges was published by Continuum International Publishing in 2011.  I am currently working on an edited collection Teaching Culture and Communication in International Contexts: Perspectives on Engineering Education in the Global Age under contract with IEEE/ Wiley Press.  My articles have appeared in Technical Communication, IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication, US-China Education Review, and the Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics, and Informatics.  I have given invited presentations on intercultural communication at professional conferences and for corporate audiences.

I have developed a global classroom project with two faculty members at the University of Limerick in Ireland.  We have team taught four classes; our next collaboration will include a faculty member from the University of Paris. I am also the leader for an interdisciplinary team of UCF faculty dedicated to teaching intercultural communication and information literacy.

I am a recipient of TIP (1995, 2003, 2009) and SoTL (2010) awards and the 2009 University of Central Florida Internationalization Award.  I have served as a Faculty Associate for the Office of International Studies.  I currently serve as the Vice President for the International Policy Analysis Center, a non-profit research center.

Through my collaborative work and my own international partnerships, I believe that I inspire my students to move beyond their cultural comfort zones and to develop a framework for global civic engagement that will serve them throughout their lives.
