Sophie Major’s interests are found at the intersection of political philosophy and contemporary issues of social justice. She is currently researching the roles of narrative theory and emerging political psychology research for understanding international climate politics. Her MA thesis investigated the philosophical assumptions underlying the concept of “path dependency” in political studies. Prior to joining ERG, Sophie completed her B.A.S. at Quest University, where her thesis assessed the role of First Nations’ activism in determining forestry management outcomes. In her professional experience working for Laurence Berkeley National Lab and various non-profits, Sophie spearheaded projects in community relations, climate change education, and science communication with government.
