Diego Pascual y Cabo is Assistant Professor of Hispanic Linguistics and Director of the Spanish Heritage Language Program at Texas Tech University. In 2013, Diego received his Ph.D. in Hispanic Linguistics at the University of Florida, where he specialized in heritage speaker bilingualism and second language acquisition. Over the past few years, his work on these topics has appeared in several scholarly journals, such as Applied Linguistics, Heritage Language Journal, Hispania, International Review of Applied Linguistics, and Studies in Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics. His most recent publication is an edited volume entitled Advances in Spanish as a Heritage Language (John Benjamins, 2016).
In 2014, Diego founded the Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language, which has since become an annual event in the field of heritage speaker bilingualism. In 2017, the symposium will be held at the University of California, Irvine. Diego also serves as the managing editor (area of linguistics) of the Hispanic Studies Review, an international refereed journal housed in the Department of Hispanic Studies at the College of Charleston.
At Texas Tech, Diego is also an active member of the Bilingualism and Second Language Acquisition Lab, where he collaborates with other colleagues and students. If you are interested in knowing more about the type of research that he does, visit the lab's webpage at ttubsla.weebly.com.
