Research interests


Sophia joined the Department in September 2017 as a Lecturer in Politics. She holds a PhD in Political Theory and has previously taught politics and rhetoric at Goldsmiths, University of London. In 2016 she was awarded an Early Career Fellowship by the Leverhulme Trust to study various aspects of environmental rhetoric and political communication. The project, entitled 'Green Arguments: Scientific Evidence and Political Persuasion', explores themes such as: continuity and transformation in environmental disputes, the complex relation between political ideology and scientific evidence, and the role of experts in democracy. More broadly, the project contributes to political theories of the situated and contextual nature of political argumentation.
