Norma Mendoza-Denton, an associate professor of linguistic anthropology at the University of Arizona, is among four researchers selected to receive grants from UA’s newly created National Institute for Civil Discourse. 

Mendoza-Denton’s research focuses on “conflict talk” during town hall meetings hosted by former Arizona Rep. Jim Kolbe, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Rep. Gabrielle Giffords during the 2000s. She hopes to develop a better understanding of the microdynamics of conflict, particularly in town hall meetings.
