Maddie Myers-Burg serves as instructor of psychology at Ouachita. She is currently
a doctoral candidate working toward the completion of her Ph.D. through the University
of Arkansas. She obtained her M.A. in psychology from the University of Arkansas in
2018, and her B.A. in psychology from Ouachita Baptist University in 2015.
Her research focuses on young children's language and social development, particularly
how young children's knowledge of language shapes the ways in which they perceive
others. Her current research evaluates young children's knowledge of dialect, and
how young children socially perceive others who use unfamiliar dialect-specific vocabulary.
She is also interested in other aspects of social/cognitive development, including
privileged information awareness and in-group/out-group biases.
Mrs. Myers-Burg enjoys spending time with her husband and son, traveling, camping
and exploring new places.
