Carl Polley, 2012 PhD graduate, has accepted a tenure track position at Kapiolani Community College (KCC) to teach Chinese language and culture. Carl has been a lecturer at KCC since 2009 teaching various Chinese language, culture, and literature classes. You can also follow this link to read his dissertation, “Metaphors for Happiness in English and Mandarin Chinese.”
On May 12th, 2017 the Department of Linguistics marked the graduation of the class of 2017, including 8 doctoral students and 5 MA students. This year’s class of PhD students had a time-to-degree of 4.86 years – an amazing number, given the amount of time spent in the field! Moreover, each student is on their way to successful careers, some in tenure track positions, some in postdoctoral research positions, and some into industry. We wish them all the best, and look forward to their speedy return.
We will be adding to this list as the semester continues. You can also check the Dissertations page for updates on other pre-defense dissertations for the current semester, or final dissertations from previous semesters.
