Professor Brown’s academic and personal interests lie in the intersection between language and culture.  Her foreign language profile includes fluency in French and Farsi. She lived in Iran from 1978-1981 (revolution, hostage crisis, Iran-Iraq war). She believes in the power of a strong liberal arts education.  She is a generalist and feels most at home teaching the Introduction to International Studies course, various colloquia, and culminating senior seminars. Recent seminar topics have included Linguistic Human Rights and Food Security.
