Alberto Bruzos Moro (Ph.D. Linguistics, Universidad de León, Spain) has been Lecturer at Princeton University since Fall 2005.
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, 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, semantic motivation, and 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).
Currently he is interested in classroom research and discourse analysis applied to foreign language teaching. He is also beginning a project on how to integrate a strong cultural component into the foreign language curriculum.
In his scarce spare time, he gladly consumes books, movies and music, and occasionally contributes short stories and literary reviews to online magazines and blogs.
