Resume/CV

Tetiana (Tanya) White received her B.A. in Spanish and English philology from Kiev National Linguistic University, Ukraine. She then pursued an M.A. in communication at the University of North Dakota and an M.A. in Spanish linguistics at Arizona State University.

In her Spanish, linguistics, and communication classes, Ms. White gives students opportunities to develop new and various lenses through which to see themselves and other cultures. She enjoys watching students gain the confidence to speak publicly and carry that skill into their future careers.

Ms. White’s research interests lie at the intersection of linguistics and communication. Her latest master’s thesis studied critical cultural awareness of students, the structure of their mental lexicon, and their cultural values and beliefs. Her scholarly writing has appeared in Across Languages and Cultures and The Journal of Developmental Communication.
