Holly Cashman

University of New Hampshire
Associate Professor in the Department of Languages, Literatures, & Cultures

Holly is an Associate Professor in the Department of Languages, Literatures, & Cultures at the University of New Hampshire. A sociolinguist, she researches language, gender, and sexuality, particularly related to Spanish/English bilingualism and Latinxs in the U.S. Since coming to UNH in 2008, Holly has taught at all levels of the Spanish program. Holly has completed FITSI twice, most recently in summer 2017; she is excited about finding tools for leaving language textbooks behind as part of a commitment to making the language classroom a more inclusive space, and to facilitate students making connections between their developing language skills to their academic interests and personal/professional goals. As an OER ambassador, her goal is to re-imagine the elementary Spanish sequence (401-402) using Open Education Resources and Open Pedagogy in order to weave into the curriculum three interdisciplinary themes that will tie into strengths across the UNH curriculum: sustainability, citizenship, and communication.
