MCLL Faculty and Staff
Elizabeth Ametsbichler Professor, German / MCLL ChairEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org
My areas of specialty include late 18th and 19th-century literature in German-speaking countries, women writers, and fin-de-siècle Vienna. As with my colleagues, I teach lower- and upper-division courses in language, literature, and culture. Until MCLL's M.A. program was put on hold, I supervised numerous theses for our graduate students, many of whom have gone on to PhD programs and received their doctorates. Starting in 2012, I was co-chair of MCLL until 2016. Since 2016, I have served as chair.
Clary Loisel Professor, SpanishEmail: email@example.com
As a Full Professor of Spanish language, literature, and film, I specialize in gender issues in contemporary Mexican narrative and theater. The major themes of most of my upper-division classes address human rights issues. Since 2001, I have directed seven study abroad programs (five to Mexico and two to Chile). I also teach Latin American Studies and in 2014 attended classes in Portuguese at the Instituto Brasil-Estados Unidos in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where I completed the equivalent of a BA in Portuguese from the University of Florida. One of my next publications will be an anthology of Brazilian LGBT literature translated into English. I received a Fulbright Scholarship and spent fall 2017 teaching two upper-division human rights courses (in Spanish) at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
Pablo E. Requena Assistant Professor, SpanishEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org
I received a Ph.D. in Spanish Linguistics and Language Science from Penn State. At UM I teach general courses in Applied Linguistics (such as "Methods of Foreign Language Teaching" and Language Problems in the Real World"), courses in Spanish linguistics (such as Spanish Phonetics) and advanced Spanish classes. I also supervise service-learning opportunities for undergraduate students of Spanish and direct the Language Research Lab (LRL) where my students and I conduct research on the following topics: Morphosyntactic variation, Child language acquisition of variation, The role of animacy in language structure, Bilingualism and Bilingual language acquisition and L2 learning and teaching.

Barbara Weinlich Visiting Associate Professor, ClassicsEmail: email@example.com
Reared in the U.S. and Germany and educated in four different countries, I earned my D. Phil. in Classics at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe Universität at Frankfurt / Main. I participated in two research projects in Germany before I moved back to the United States in 2001. Since then I have been pursuing my research and teaching at several American institutions, among others, at the University of California at Santa Barbara and Vanderbilt University. I also hold a degree in Music.
