Assistant Professor of Linguistics, Georgetown University

Dr. Nic Subtirelu (Ph.D., Georgia State University), an assistant professor of linguistics at Georgetown, heads up the student learning outcomes assessment and test development projects related to the Seal of Biliteracy. Dr. Subtirelu teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on second language acquisition, language teaching methods, and language policy, and his research explores the politics of language education, considering in particular how well language education serves groups marginalized along lines of race and socioeconomic status. His most recent research explores whether initiatives such as the Seal of Biliteracy and dual language immersion benefit students classified as English language learners, students of color, and students from low-income households. Dr. Subtirelu has published extensively in peer-reviewed journals and other venues, and he is co-editor of a forthcoming book on race in dual language immersion. As part of the AELRC, Dr. Subtirelu conducts research on the influences of the Seal of Biliteracy on high school students, teachers, and administrators. He also conducts research to recommend new languages for the Seal, based on census data, community language school enrollment, and demand from the field. With Dr. Malone, he works on efforts to investigate the articulation of the Seal from high school to university.
