• Sophie Brown

Sophie Brown is a rising junior in the Honors College double majoring in English and Linguistics and minoring in French and Women’s and Gender Studies. Her research interests lie at the intersection of language and society, and as a research assistant at the SC&I Computational Social Science Lab, she gets to study these issues by doing qualitative coding on projects related to feminism, masculinity, and patriarchy. Last year, she was also an Aresty research assistant to Professor Martin Gliserman, helping investigate linguistic patterns in English-language novels. As a Senior Peer Reviewer and copy editor for the Aresty RURJ Undergraduate Research Journal, she teaches a weekly class to help other undergraduates learn about research from a publishing and peer review standpoint. Sophie is passionate about issues of gender and race, and interned with the nonprofit organization VOW for Girls last summer to help raise funds to end child marriage. She hopes to combine her interests in language, writing, and research to continue advocating for equality and to change the way that we talk about social issues. In her free time, Sophie loves watching horror movies, visiting cat cafes, and pretending that she has an eye for graphic design.
