Dr. Scott Dale
Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures
Dr. Dale has been Associate Professor of modern Spanish literature at Marquette since 1999. He enjoys unearthing abandoned texts of 18th-century Spain and scandalous novels of modern Europe. One aspect that surprises him is how the "gender" of language in popular fiction of the Enlightenment could be so cleverly manipulated in order to deceive the reader. The construction and manipulation of fictitious identities in 18th-century Spanish narrative inspires both new research and innovative approaches to teaching. Outside the classroom Dr. Dale enjoys cycling with the sun and wind at his back, weekend siestas, squirrel chasing with his Jack Russell Terrier, playing tennis with his son and baking home-made pesto pizza on a Friday night.
