Congratulations to Dr. Christina Higgins, who was appointed to serve as co-editor of Applied Linguistics, a prestigious peer-reviewed academic journal published by Oxford University Press. Dr. Higgins joins co-editor Dr. Anna Mauranen (University of Helsinki), for a five-year term. Applied Linguistics publishes research into language that is relevant to real-world problems.
Higgins’ appointment marks the third time an SLS professor has served in the position. Previous incumbents were Craig Chaudron and, more recently, Gabriele Kasper. The SLS department’s faculty has long been sought after for their professional expertise.
