Biography

Edurne comes from the Basque Country (Northern Spain) and speaks both Basque and Spanish as mother tongues. She comes from a family of writers and literature professors what clearly influenced in her decision of doing her BA in Modern Languages (Hispanic studies) at Deusto University (Bilbao, Spain) with a Certificate in Teaching Spanish as a Second Language. After studying a year abroad at Swansea University (United Kingdom) she returned to Spain and worked in a public institution as an instructor of Spanish as a second language to foreigners who lived in Spain, and also worked as teacher of Spanish at a high school. In 2014 she headed to Pullman (WA) to complete her MA in Foreign Languages and Cultures (Spanish) at Washington State University while she worked as an instructor of Spanish teaching low and upper division. Edurne is also a published author/writer and holds a position as Associate Editor of the SPR journal (American Association of Teacher of Spanish and Portuguese) where she is peer reviewer. Since 2016 she teaches Spanish at ASU and focuses her PhD thesis in Jewish and Islam influence in Spanish and Latin American literature and culture. Apart from her mother tongues, Edurne speaks English, German, Italian and Arabic.
