Dr. Mallinson’s interdisciplinary and collaborative research comprehensively examines language as a socially and culturally contextualized practice in order to address linguistic bias and misinformation and expand educational equity. Reflecting her longstanding commitment to carrying out engaged academic work within a social justice framework, she aims to apply research to dismantle deficit notions surrounding cultural and linguistic difference in ways that are community-centered while informing social and educational policy and practice.
The co-author and co-editor of seven books and numerous other publications, Dr. Mallinson currently co-leads two National Science Foundation awards, working with scholars and students across linguistics and language sciences, education, and data science. She is also a current member and past chair of the Ethics committee of the Linguistic Society of America, as well as a member of several journal and university advisory boards.
