Life Management Series for Students: Advocating for Oneself & One’s Family through Letters & Email

Date: Wednesday, March 20, 2019
Time: 2:30 – 4:30 pm
Location: Koffler Student Services Centre, 214 College St., Room 313

A workshop series designed to empower students to find a better balance between academic life and caring for others.

Students with family responsibilities have a lot on their plate! When a problem arises – be it academic, family related, personal or professional – advocating for oneself and one’s family can feel like a daunting task, particularly if the stakes are high. Traditionally defined as the “art of persuasion,” rhetoric is a powerful tool which students can use to better communicate through the written word. What is the best way to present one’s case? How can emotions be conveyed strategically and diplomatically? When writing a letter or email, what should come first – the presentation of the problem or the suggested solution? This workshop will touch upon these questions by focusing on the strategic use of rhetoric in letter and email writing.

Facilitator: Dr. Viktoria Jovanovic-Krstic, Writing & Rhetoric, Innis College. Dr. Jovanovic-Krstic brings with her years of experience in English stylistics and grammar, as well as business and technical communications from academic institutions across Canada and Europe. Her main areas of research and interest are the rhetoric of war, spinning and framing tactics in the press, grammar, persuasive writing and business communication. Viktoria is also a mom of two children who is no stranger to the life of a student with family responsibilities!
