Meet Enric Mallorquí-Ruscalleda
Educator Leads Students to Become Lifelong Learners
May 6, 2014
Enric Mallorquí-Ruscalleda brings an international touch and a broad range to the Spanish literature and culture classes at Cal State Fullerton.
The assistant professor of the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures has traveled around the world and holds several academic degrees, from a bachelor's in philology earned at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, to a master's degree in Hispanic studies from the University of Western Ontario and a doctorate in Spanish and Portuguese languages and cultures from Princeton. His current research interests focus on the literary and cultural production of medieval and early modern and contemporary Iberia and colonial Latin America.
Mallorquí-Ruscalleda says that he has always been interested in learning and teaching and feels that his primary goal as an educator "is to assist my students in becoming able lifelong learners who can process their world ably, however it might shape itself. This largely involves becoming discriminating readers and viewers, analytical thinkers and critical writers."
