Dr. Lane Windham

Lane Windham ('15, History) just published a new book based on the research she did as University of Maryland student: Knocking on Labor’s Door: Union Organizing in the 1970s and the Roots of a New Economic Divide.  She was recently appointed the Associate Director of Georgetown University's Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor. She co-directs WILL Empower, an ambitious collaborative project with Rutgers University to promote women’s leadership in the labor movement and the struggle for economic justice.  She has published widely on issues of class, race, gender, and the future of work, including in the Washington Post, Baltimore Sun and the American Prospect.

Dr. Jason Bartles

Jason Bartles ('14, Latin American Literatures/Cultures) is an Assistant Professor of Spanish in the Department of Languages and Cultures at the West Chester University of Pennsylvania. I have published my research in journals, including Revista Iberoamericana (University of Pittsburgh) and Revista Hispánica Moderna (Columbia University).

More information about Jason and his work can be found here.

Dr. Ewan Dunbar Ewan Dunbar's ('13, Linguistics) research focuses on how human cognition processes speech, trying to help use what we learn to explain why human languages have the speech sounds, and the rules for combining speech sounds, that they do, with the aid of deep learning and behavioural experiments. After working as a postdoctoral researcher for four years at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, as of 2017, he became an assistant professor in Linguistics at Université Paris Diderot (Paris 7). More about Ewan and his work can be found here.
