About Agustina Carando

September 29, 2012

I am a doctoral candidate in Linguistics at the Graduate Center, City University of New York.

I am a native of city of Córdoba, Argentina. I attended Juan Zorrilla de San Martin primary and secondary schools, and the British School of Córdoba since I was eight years old.

In the fall of 2001, I moved to the United States to attend William Paterson University in Wayne, NJ, where I gained my Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature. Upon my graduation, I was accepted to the Ph.D. program in Linguistics at the Graduate Center, CUNY in 2004. My work there and elsewhere can be found here.

I have volunteered in community organizations, such as the Immigrants Assistance Center, serving on its Board of Directors during my time in Massachusetts. I have served as an Associate Advisor for ACJG Associates, in Mamaroneck, NY, on issues of education and community development.

Outside of academia, I have been an avid learner and performer of Odissi Dance, one of the eight classical dance forms of India, from the state of Orissa. I enjoy cooking and eating Indian, Korean, Middle Eastern, and Caribbean cuisines with my friends, family, and partner of ten years, J.T. Ghim.
