Romance Languages & Linguistics Faculty 2016

Our faculty of publicly recognized teachers and scholars are highly knowledgeable, dedicated to their students, and active participants in the UVM community. In addition to the courses we teach in our own department, many of us also collaborate with UVM's other academic programs which overlap our areas of specialization, including Global & Regional Studies; Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies; and World Literature.
