ISA Office in Granada, Spain
David Puente, Ph.D.
Liaison for Academic Affairs, Spain/U.S. in Granada, Spain
David Puente joined the ISA Granada staff early in 2003. He received his Ph. D. in English and Comparative Literature from the University of California at Irvine, and now holds a part-time teaching position at the University of Granada. A native of Minnesota, David has lived in several different parts of the United States and visited over 25 countries, but Spain is his hands-down favorite, for reasons he is eager to share with ISA students. Having first become a Hispanophile during summer stays in Santiago de Compostela and Santander, he married a Spaniard and moved to Granada, which he considers one of the world's most beautiful cities. When not busy "going native", he enjoys writing English-language accounts of his travels in Spain, as well as playing basketball and guitar, al estilo americano.
