Professional Summary

Juan A. Godoy Peñas is Assistant Professor Educator in Spanish, Coordinator of Spanish Intermediate (SPAN2015-2016), and Spanish Language Advisor for the Spanish Basic Language Program (SPAN1001, 1002, 2015, 2016). Previously, he has worked as Teaching Assistant at Harvard University and Visiting Instructor at Qingdao University, China. His research interests mainly focus on Spanish peninsular literature, and applied linguistics and second language teaching. Both areas of his work focus on the concept of identity and its formation through writing and the acquisition of foreign language.
 
In the literary field, he studies the second generation of writers exiled by the Spanish Civil War, the concepts of memory and trauma, and the hybridity of literary genres, especially autobiographical genres. In relation to this topic, he has recently published the articles “La «Otra» segunda generación de escritores exiliados tras la Guerra Civil española: más allá de México” in Hispanófila, and “Niños de la guerra en México: la desterritorialización como consecuencia del exilio a través de Carlos Blanco Aguinaga y Angelina Muñiz-Huberman” in Middle Atlantic Review of Latin American Studies. Currently, he is editing his book Memoria, identidad y literatura del yo: narrativas de la segunda generación de escritores exiliados por la Guerra Civil española, which will be released in late 2020 or early 2021.
 
Regarding applied linguistics and second language teaching, his research pays attention to the role of technology in the classroom and the creation of hybrid courses. This led him to create the first hybrid course in Spanish in collaboration with Dr. Liander within the Department of RLL at Harvard University in Spring 2020. Additionally, he is especially interested in the role of the learner´s identity in the process of second language acquisition, as well as the impact of the incorporation of diversity in the didactic material. In 2020, in collaboration with the Observatory Cervantes at Harvard University, he organized a series of workshops entitled “Mapping the Minorities in Spanish as Second Language Acquisition.” He has also recently been invited by the Institute Cervantes from NY to give a workshop entitled “Fostering Diversity in the Spanish Language Classroom: the role of minoritized identities.”
