Studying the intersection among language, identity, and politics
Sarah is interested in the place of identity in the discussion of politics, and specifically how language frames these discussions. Her interest is largely influenced by constructivist theories that look at the role of agency in international relations. By using this lens, she seeks to emphasize the importance of understanding identity when analyzing domestic, and inherently international, relations.
