Caleb Kelley

Degree Program: PhD


​I am Ph.D. Candidate in Romance Languages specializing in Spanish linguistics. My primary area of study includes sociophonetics—and sociolinguistics more broadly—as it relates to language, gender, and sexuality. My doctoral dissertation, currently in progress, focuses on the sociophonetic variation of LGBTQ+ speakers of Peninsular Spanish. In addition to my doctoral work, I am a coordinator for Spanish 102 sections in the Spanish Basic Language Program at UA. I also teach introductory- and intermediate-level Spanish classes to undergraduates.
