¡Welcome y Bienvenidos!

I'm Dr. Allen Davis, Director of the Basic Language Program in Spanish in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Indiana University-Bloomington. and this is my personal hompage. 


In addition to being a Lecturer of Spanish at IUB and a linguist, in my spare time, I am also a musician and an artist.  I currently live in Bloomington, Indiana and teach Spanish and Foriegn Language Teaching Methods at Indiana University.  I have my Doctorate in Hispanic Linguistics from Penn State Universityand my dissertation examined the relationship between music and second language acquisition.  I truly love my work as an educator and I am lucky to still be able to devote much of my spare time to my hobbies.  To the left in the column What's up next, you can see a small listing of events that I will be participating in, both academic and musical, some previous events, as well as some recent events.


I am a proud Hoosier by birth, born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana.  I am still connected to the city through my many friends and family there, and also through the Indianapolis Symphony Choir, of which I am a member.  I am frequently in Indianapolis and enjoy my hometown dearly, but have come to appreciate the serenity of Bloomington as well.   You can find more information about me, my work, and my interests in each of the sections above.
