Biography

Dr. Liakopoulos joined the IWU faculty in 2015. Her research, interdisciplinary in nature, primarily focuses on the works of Spanish poet Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer and their relationship to the arts, specifically painting and music.

Dr. Liakopoulos is passionate about Foreign languages, literatures, and cultures and strives to blend personal experience and knowledge in the classroom. After living in Spain and working with international students abroad, she has become a strong advocate of study abroad programs. She considers that the university experience should be "global" and that all students should be able to complement their academic formation in a foreign country.
