Alberto Bruzos Moro (Ph.D. Linguistics, Universidad de León, Spain) has been working at Princeton University since Fall 2005. Since Fall 2011 he holds a position as Senior Lecturer, director of the Spanish Language Program, and director of the Princeton in Spain study abroad program.
Before joining the Spanish and Portuguese Department at Princeton University, he taught Semantics, General Linguistics, and Spanish language courses at Universidad de León (Spain). He also spent one year in Hungary (Fazekas Mihály Gimnázium, Debrecen), working as lecturer in Spanish language and culture.
While completing his doctoral dissertation on the pragmatics of irony, he was visiting a student at K.U. Leuven (Belgium) and THEDEL (Laboratoire Théorie et Description Linguistique), Paris (France).
He has published articles on linguistic relativism, on semantic motivation, and on the pragmatics of irony. Recently he collaborated in the collective book Dime cómo ironizas y te diré quién eres: una aproximación pragmática a la ironía (Frankfurt, Peter Lang, 2009).
As director of the Spanish Language Program at Princeton, currently he is working in syllabus design and teacher training. He is also interested in classroom research, critical discourse analysis and the cultural outcomes of study abroad programs.
In his scarce spare time, he consumes books, movies and music, and occasionally contributes short stories and literary reviews to online magazines and blogs.
