Bio

Welcome!

I am an Assistant Professor of Linguistics, housed in the linguistics program in the English department of the University of New Hampshire; I also occasionally teach courses for the Women's and Gender Studies Program (specifically, Language and Gender). 

A note on my names: 

"Steindel" is my middle name; "Burdin" is my last name. If you happen to be citing me, please do so as Burdin, Rachel Steindel, or Burdin, R. S. Both "Steindel" and "Burdin" are iambic, not trochiac, and are pronounced [stɑɪnˈdɛɫ bɹ̩ˈdin], rather than, say [ˈstɑɪndɫ̩ ˈbɹ̩dn̩]. My pronouns are she/her/hers.
