Service & Outreach

I currently serve as the Executive Editor for Diachronica: International Journal for Historical Linguistics.

I also moderate the Histling-l historical linguistics mailing list. If you’d like to join the list, go to this page and fill out the form.

For 2017-2020, I was the Chair of Yale’s Women Faculty Forum, a group that works on research, policy, and community events on campus. This involves doing research on gender in higher education (e.g. analyses of the Title IX cases brought to the university).
