Dr. Steven Alcorn
The DLLC is excited to welcome a new faculty member this fall, Visiting Professor of Spanish, Dr. Steven Alcorn. Dr. Alcorn introduces himself here:
¡Hola a todos! My name is Dr. Steven Alcorn and this semester I began teaching here at UD as a continuing-track Assistant Professor of Spanish. I currently teach courses at the 200 and 300 levels, and I look forward to working at other levels during my time here. I received my Ph.D. in Iberian and Latin American Linguistics from the University of Texas at Austin in 2018. My personal and academic travels have taken me to such places as Argentina, Mexico, Brazil and Portugal, and I am incredibly grateful for this position which allows me to share my knowledge and passion for Hispanic language and culture with both students and colleagues.
Although my professional responsibilities here at UD are focused primarily on teaching, I am also engaged in research related to the acquisition of Spanish as a second language, specifically areas concerning pronunciation and speech perception. One of my current projects examines how well instructed learners of Spanish can recognize different regional dialects of Spanish, what linguistic information they use to do this, and how their perception of linguistic features interacts with their attitudes and judgments of the speakers of different language varieties.
Although my wife and I moved to Delaware during a very strange time, we have been able to explore quite a bit of Newark and the surrounding area, and it has quickly begun to feel like home. As an avid cyclist I have been enjoying the numerous bike paths and trails, and as an amateur history buff I am constantly fascinated by the architectural and cultural treasures that the region has to offer.
