Devin Grammon is a Ph.D. candidate in the Hispanic Linguistics program. His academic interests include sociocultural linguistics and second language studies as well as Andean languages and cultures. Devin’s research primarily draws on ethnographic data from educational settings in central Ohio and Cusco, Peru, in addition to quantitative analyses of spoken Spanish from South America.
During the 2016 calendar year, Devin will be conducting 12 months of dissertation research in Cusco, Peru, as a Fulbright-Hays Doctoral Dissertation Research Abroad Fellow. During this time, Devin will investigate the social and cultural patterning of (second) language features in contexts of global education in Cusco, especially as they relate to second language learning, speakers’ beliefs and feelings about language, and their participation within speech communities.
