DAMIÁN ROBLES is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Spanish in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Miami University of Ohio. He holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Hispanic Studies, Spanish Linguistics and Literature tracks, from Texas A&M University; and a Bachelor of Arts in three areas: Spanish, Romance Linguistics (Self-Designed), and French Studies (Self-Designed); with a minor in Italian, from The College of New Jersey. 

 

He has two published co-authored manuscripts, the first, it examines code-switching, code-mixing in the Texan popular music: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.langcom.2018.02.009, and a second one, it investigates lexical borrowing in the language of technology and fashion and beauty: https://doi.org/10.1075/ihll.26.13mor.

 

Damián’s dissertation focuses on historical contrastive pragmatics by analyzing forms of address (of second-person pronouns) and impoliteness phenomena (vocatives of insults) in Cervantes' work and the first known Early Modern English translation of Don Quixote (1607-1620).
