Victor Villanueva

During Victor Villanueva's keynote address at IWCA, I captured clips of it on my PowerBook. Here is his call to action in wav file format. (Note: I don't have the whole speech recorded and only this clip survived my recording incompetence. I place it here like one would place a quotation: it is only a clip and is acceptable under the principles of fair use.) I believe hearing the speech is important. From it you can better understand the commitment and the passion that Villanueva brings to the subject. His call to action for writing centers is greatly needed.

[Update: after discussion with Beth Boquet, I've decided to pull the clip for now.--Clint]
[Update 2: I've written to Professor Villanueva to ask his permission to use the clip. --Clint]
[Update 3: Professor Villanueva has given his permission to use the clip, so I've put it back up.]

    The posting of the clip and the ensuing discussion seems a model of civil conversation among colleauges.

    Thanks Victor, Clint, Beth and all involved.

    I hope the clip is available for viewing again.

  2. Does anyone out there have the full speech? I think it would be nice that if we are going to "quote" Victor, we "quote" him fully. (Or, maybe I just think it would be nice to have the whole thing...)

  3. I don't know of any one who has the whole speech, Matt. WCJ is pursuing publishing it. I agree with you that having the whole speech would be great, but what did you think of what you heard?
