FERNÁNDEZ-AVILÉS, JORGE

Jorge Fernández-Avilés holds a BA in English Studies (2019, University of Extremadura – UNEX) and an MA in Secondary Education (2021, UNEX). He is currently completing an MA in Advanced English Studies at the University of Santiago de Compostela, under funding from a research grant (May-November 2022) from the Vicerrectorate for Scientific Policy of the USC and the Banco Santander Foundation.   

As an ERASMUS exchange student  (2017-2018) Jorge studied at the National University of Ireland Galway. In 2018 he received a collaboration scholarship (November 2018 - June 2019) from the Spanish Ministry of Education, to carry out research on CORIECOR (Corpus of Irish English Correspondence) at the Department of English at UNEX. He has also obtained a ten-month grant (2019-2020) from the UNEX which enabled him to stay at Kalamazoo College (Michigan, USA) as a teaching assistant of Spanish.

Jorge is interested in the construction of stance from the perspective of ecolinguistics; he is preparing his MA thesis within this field, under the supervision of María José López-Couso and Belén Méndez-Naya.
