Biography

Alicia Rueda-Acedo is an Associate Professor of Spanish and Translation at the University of Texas at Arlington where she created and currently directs the Spanish Translation and Interpreting program. She received her Ph.D. in Hispanic Languages and Literatures from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and she holds a B.A. (Licenciatura) in Journalism from the University of Seville and a Licenciatura in Translation and Interpreting from the University of Granada. She is a Sworn Translator and Interpreter by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Alicia has worked as freelance translator and as journalist and translator trainee at the European Parliament in Brussels.

She is the Community Outreach Coordinator for the Department of Modern Languages and the recipient of the College of Liberal Arts Outstanding Teaching Award (Tenured Faculty) in 2014. She was inducted to the UTA Academy of Distinguished Teachers in 2015, and named 2016 COLA Professor of the Year on behalf of the Arlington Sunrise Rotary Club. In addition, she received a Certificate from the House of Representatives of the State of Texas in commemoration of receiving the Excellence in Higher Education Award from Arlington Sunrise Rotary.

Dr. Rueda-Acedo has published widely on 20th and 21st century Transatlantic Literature, on topics such as literary journalism, women authors, and history. She is the author of Miradas Transatlánticas: el periodismo literario de Elena Poniatowska y Rosa Montero (Purdue University Press, 2012), and the co-editor of Independencias, Revoluciones y Revelaciones, doscientos años de literatura mexicana (University of Veracruz Press, 2010).

She started to integrate community translation and service learning in her translation courses back in 2011. Since then, her students have translated the 2011 Toys for Tots campaign organized by the US Marine Corps and La sweet vida, a program to tackle type-2 diabetes led by Mission Arlington. Students in her classes collaborate with Proyecto Inmigrante, a non-profit organization for immigration counseling services, and the Arlington Public Library where they translate and publish stories written by parents within a program called Stories to Our Children.

        (Course Id: 110771 | Servlearn Desc: SPAN 3340 is a SERVICE LEARNING course. Students have the opportunity to collaborate with the Arlington Public Library in a project called “Stories to Our Children”. Program Description: “At the Arlington Public Library, we believe that sharing stories creates a lasting bond between parents and children. Through the Stories to Our Children program, underserved mothers and fathers will be empowered to pen their own children’s stories, written from life experiences, imagination and the heart. The library will then publish and catalog them. The goal and mission is to enforce the idea that mothers and fathers are the first and most important teachers and role models to their children. Likewise, we seek to create a bond between Arlington families and the library. By being published in the library, families will gain a sense of ownership for the library. Too often, we hear the myth that reading to your child is a middle-class tradition. Families from all backgrounds tell stories to their children. For many families, however, their cultural stories and life experiences are not available on library bookshelves. The goal is to create a special collection of books that are written specifically by Arlington families who have diverse traditions, values and life experiences. By making these unique stories available, we hope to ignite a passion for reading.” The Stories are written in Spanish and students in Span 3340 will collaborate translating and editing them into English. There will be oral discussions about the service learning experience throughout the semester, and students will turn in a reflective paper about their experience with the Arlington Public Library and the Hispanic community. Students translations will be published and catalogued by the APL.)
