SUÁREZ-GÓMEZ, CRISTINA

Cristina Suárez-Gómez obtained her MA in English Language and Literature at the University of Santiago de Compostela in 1997. She also holds the degree of Master in Linguistics from the University of York (2003). In October 2000 she started work as a researcher at the University of Santiago de Compostela; from October 2001 to September 2002 she stayed at the Department of Language and Linguistic Science of the University of York on a scholarship from the British Council and the Pedro Barrié de la Maza Foundation, and from August 2003 to July 2004 she worked as a Teaching Associate at the Department of Spanish of Brown University, USA.

In 2004 Cristina received her PhD in English Linguistics (European Doctorate) from the University of Santiago de Compostela. After a brief period at the Ramón Piñeiro Institute for Research in the Humanities, she obtained a position as Lecturer in English at the Department of Spanish and Modern and Classical Languages of the University of the Balearic Islands, where she teaches English Grammar II (undergraduate, 4th year), History of the English Language I and II (undergraduate, 4th & 5th years), and a PhD course on historical linguistics. In October 2010 she was promoted to a position as tenured Senior Lecturer.

Cristina's main areas of specialization are English historical syntax, pragmatics, and grammaticalization theory. Other research interests include English dialectal variation from both a synchronic and a diachronic perspective, women’s language (English and Spanish), contact Englishes, and issues related to the teaching and assessment of Galician, the Romance language spoken in northwestern Spain. She also has experience in the organization of research meetings, such as the international conference Englishes Today: Theoretical and Methodological Issues, held at the University of Vigo in October 2013, and in the compilation of electronic corpora: together with Elena Seoane (UVigo) and Lucía Loureiro-Porto (UIB) she is in charge of the compilation of ICE Gibraltar, within the ICE (International Corpus of English) project.

Cristina is the convenor of the Sociolinguistics and Dialectology panel at the annual conferences of AEDEAN, the Spanish Association for English and American Studies, and the Principal Investigator of the project “Morphosyntactic variation in New Englishes”, under funding from the Spanish Ministry for Economy and Competitiveness (grant FFI2011-26693-C02-02). This project is being carried out at the University of the Balearic Islands, in coordination with the Santiago-based project FFI2011-26693-C02-01 (Principal Investigator: María José López-Couso).
