Personal bio
Zion Mengesha attended the University of California, Davis for her Bachelor's degree, double majoring in linguistics and philosophy. She is currently a PhD student in the Linguistics Department at Stanford University, and a graduate fellow at Stanford's Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity. Her work uses mixed methods to explore the relationship between racial ideologies, racial identity, and language. Specifically, she employs both experimental phonetics and psycholinguistic methods to examine how African American language and identity are perceived, including how speaker identity spreads through cognition to influence subsequent memory of spoken words.
