IE School of Arts & Humanities in conjunction with the University of California at Berkeley offers a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship in the Humanities. This fellowship offers the opportunity for young academics to further their development through designing and implementing their own curricular ideas in the international classroom setting of IE’s cross-disciplinary approach to humanities.
Dr. Julia McAnallen is a teaching fellow in the humanities at IE University in the 2011-12 academic year. She teaches classes and contributes to the development of IE’s innovative humanities curriculum for the University and the Business School as well as receiving research support from IE and spending one year in Spain on both the School’s campuses in Segovia and Madrid.
Professor McAnallen´s research is in linguistics and Slavic languages, with a focus on historical and contact linguistics at the peripheries of Slavic-speaking Europe where speakers of Slavic languages have long been in contact with speakers of non-Slavic languages. She received her PhD and M.A. in Slavic Linguistics from the University of California, Berkeley where she taught courses in linguistics, geography, and the Russian language. Her research has taken her to Central and Eastern Europe on several occasions, including extended trips to Russia and the Czech Republic. While Dr. McAnallen’s training is primarily in Slavic, her teaching and research interests encompass language contact and spread scenarios across the globe.
