Ana BOCANEGRA-VALLE


I am a senior lecturer at the University of Cadiz, Spain, where I teach Maritime English to undergraduates and Master’s students. I have conducted research on needs analysis, learning strategies, interculturality, Maritime English discourse, academic and professional discourse, scholarly publishing and English for research publication purposes. I have published internationally on various aspects pertaining to these researching topics, have co-edited the compilation English for Specific Purposes: Studies for Classroom Development and Implementation (2007) and recently edited the volume Applied Linguistics and Knowledge Transfer. Internationalisation, Employability and Social Challenges (Peter Lang, 2020). I have also served in the scientific boards of national and international conferences and assisted national and international journals as peer reviewer.

You can follow my updates on ResearchGate and Google Scholar.
