Biography of Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs and Internationalization,
Gayle R. Nunley

Gayle NunleyGayle Nunley, Ph.D., is the Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs and Internationalization and Associate Professor of Spanish. Gayle joined the faculty of the University of Vermont in 1988. She completed her Ph.D. in Romance Languages at Princeton University (B.A. Dartmouth, M.A. Middlebury, M.A. Princeton), specializing in 19th-20th century Spanish literature and film. Her research has focused on comparative avant-garde literature and film of the 1920s and 1930s and, more recently, on strategies of cross-cultural representation. Her book Scripted Geographies (Bucknell University Press 2007) falls into this latter category, as does her current book project, nearing completion, entitled Booking Passage: Spanish Women’s Travel Writings (19th Century through 1936). She enjoys teaching a wide variety of courses in both Spanish language acquisition and on themes more closely related to her own areas of research, including a first-year seminar on how the Spanish Civil War has been represented in literature and film and courses for UVM's Global Studies program on globalized mobilities and cultural identity.

Gayle has held numerous leadership and service roles at the Department and University levels including Chairing the Department of Romance Languages from 2003 to 2011; Faculty Senate Professional Standards Committee (1997-2001, Co-Chair 2000-2001); Director of European Studies; service on the Global & Regional Studies Executive Council; and the International Advisory Council (Co-Chair, Curriculum Subcommittee).

She was appointed Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs and Internationalization in July 2011.
