Tanya Matthews

Assistant Professor & First-Year Specialist

.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Tanya Matthews received her B.A. from the University of Utah and completed
her M.A. and Ph.D. in Linguistics at Cornell University. Before joining
the Cornish faculty, she was an NSF research fellow and carried out
interdisciplinary research on youth language, social networks, and
categorization. She also worked as a research ethicist at the University
of Washington and the Group Health Research Institute, where she provided
training and professional development for faculty and students alike.
Tanya’s approach to teaching and learning has been greatly influenced by
Cornell’s Knight Writing Institute, where she taught discipline-based
seminars for first-year students, including an award-winning course on
teens and slang. Her research, education, and teaching focus on issues of
transition, especially the transition to college. Tanya has a
long-standing interest in the arts and is excited to further explore the
cognitive conceptual frameworks that help us interpret symbol, color,
sound, and movement.
