Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities And Fine Arts
Daniel Hasty joins the Department of English as an assistant professor of linguistics. He earned a Ph.D. in linguistics this year at Michigan State University. His dissertation on âÄúDouble Modals in the Midsouth,âÄĚ a study of syntactic variation, reflects his strong interest in language attitudes and especially in the often stigmatized features associated with Southern United States English. Hasty will be teaching a range of writing, grammar and linguistics courses in the Department of English and will also be contributing to the new interdisciplinary minor in Southern Studies. He also holds an M.A. in English from Auburn University and a B.A. in English from Tennessee Technological University.
