Teaching intwo languages

For Associate Prof. Lawrence
LaFountain-Stokes, using both Eng-
lish and Spanish in his classes is not
just part of his job - it's part of who
he is.
Born and raised in San Juan, Puer-
to Rico, LaFountain-Stokes grew up
with an English-speaking father and
a mother who spoke both English
and Spanish. LaFountain-Stokes
was raised using both languages and
he attended bilingual schools for
twelve years.
LaFountain-Stokes has taught at
the University since 2003. He holds
a joint appointment in the Latino
Studies, American Culture and
Spanish departments and he said his
work in these departments allows
him to incorporate both English and
Spanish into his teaching.
"Teaching in Spanish is a very
integral part of what I do," LaFoun-
tain-Stokes said. "If I don't teach in
Spanish I get depressed because I

really enjoy the language."
The courses he has taught at the
University cover a variety of top-
ics including LGBT studies, queer
Hispanic culture and Latino and
Caribbean literature, theater, perfor-
mance and film.
The controversial nature of some
of LaFountain-Stokes' courses, like
those on LGBT issues and feminism,
can make teaching more challeng-
ing, but he said it also makes his job
more interesting.
"It makes it more satisfying for me
to be able to talk about socially com-
plex issues in the classroom," he said.
Before coming to the University,
LaFountain-Stokes attended Har-
vard University. During his time
there he studied abroad at the Uni-
versity of Sao Paulo in Brazil where
he lived for a year and half. He said
his time away from Harvard "put
things into perspective."
"Living abroad was much more

challenging." LaFountain-Stokes
said. "Going to a private school in the
U.S. where the library had books and
there weren't strikes, and where you
could walk to class and there was no
hyper-inflation, it made it very easy."
Following his studies in Cam-
bridge and Sao Paulo, LaFountain-
Stokes went on to earn Master's and
Doctorate degrees in Spanish from
Columbia University in New York.
After his time at Columbia,
LaFountain-Stokes began teach-
ing at Ohio State University where
he worked as an assistant professor.
from1998to 1999. He then went on to
teach at Rutgers from 1999 to 2003.
In addition to his work in the class-
room, LaFountain-Stokes is also the
author of Queer Ricans: Cultures and
Sexualities in the Diaspora, as well
as a recipient of numerous awards
and scholastic fellowships including
the Woodrow Wilson Award.
