Tacelosky Kathleen Tacelosky, Department Chair of Languages; Professor of Spanish
B.A., Ursinus College; M.A., West Chester University; Ph.D., University of Texas at Arlington

Dr. Kathleen Tacelosky earned her B.A. in Spanish (Ursinus College), her M.A. in TESOL (West Chester University) and her Ph.D. in Linguistics (University of Texas at Arlington). Her doctoral thesis took her to the Amazon Basin in Peru to study the influence of bilingual education on the maintenance and shift of Shipibo, a language of the region. More recently her research has been motivated by civic engagement. In 2010 the textbook she co-authored, Diálogos: Hacia una comunidad global was published. Designed for Intermediate Spanish students, the book integrates experiential learning and language learning. In 2010-2011, Dr. Tacelosky was awarded a Fulbright grant to continue community-based linguistic research and teach in the Languages Department at the Universidad de las Américas in Puebla, Mexico. Dr. Tacelosky has taught Spanish, ESL and linguistics in the U.S., Mexico, Japan, and Puerto Rico.
