Sharese King, a 2018 graduate of Stanford University, is a Provost's Postdoctoral Scholar at The University of Chicago in the Linguistics Department. Her research focuses on the relationship between race and language with the aim of understanding how African Americans' speech is constructed, racialized, and evaluated. She is the co-author of the paper "Language and linguistics on trial: Hearing Rachel Jeantel (and other vernacular speakers) in the Courtroom and Beyond", which won the 2016 Best Paper in Language award. Her latest work "From AAVE to AAL: Rethinking the Relationship Between Race and Language in the Study of African Americans' Speech," will appear shortly in the Annual Review of Linguistics.

Charles Yang studied computer science at MIT and is now a faculty member in linguistics, computer science and psychology at Penn and the director of its cognitive science program. He is primarily interested in formal models of language acquisition, variation, and change. He is the author of several books; The Price of Linguistic Productivity (MIT Press 2016) won the LSA Leonard Bloomfield Award. His honors include a Guggenheim fellowship.
