Conxita Domènech (she/her/hers) is Professor of Spanish Literature, Language and Culture at the Department of Modern and Classical Languages in the University of Wyoming. She has also taught Spanish Language and Culture at the University of Shanghai, University of Colorado at the Beijing campus, and in a kibbutz in Israel. She earned her Ph.D. in Spanish Literature from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Conxita is an award-winning instructor with over twenty years of teaching experience.
Conxita received her undergraduate and M.A. in Anthropology at the Universidad Autònoma de Barcelona. Her last year studying in Spain, she received an Erasmus Scholarship and finished her M.A. at University of Oxford. Although she teaches Spanish Language and Literature, enjoys exploring the cultural aspects of societies and loves travelling. Conxita has frequently traveled with students to Europe and Latin America, but this will be her first Semester at Sea voyage.
Conxita research interests include Catalan and Castilian plays and pamphlets from the Baroque period. She has published eight books and several articles and book chapters. She is currently finishing revisions of a book manuscript on the Modern Language Association (MLA) style in Spanish with an expected publication date of 2021–22.
As a first-generation college graduate, Conxita enjoys working with students from all backgrounds. She loves reading, running, watching movies and spending time with her husband, family, friends and, of course, Ramonet—her cat.
It is with enthusiasm that Conxita joins the Spring 2022 faculty at Semester at Sea. She looks forward to teaching literature, culture and Spanish onboard the MV Odyssey.
