Sarah Bruyere graduated cum laude from Northwestern University in 2017 with a double major in American history and gender studies. While at Northwestern, Sarah participated in Sustained Dialogue, a campus inclusion initiative, and she also studied abroad at the Universidad de Buenos Aires for a semester. However, Sarah found her true passion in academic research. In the summer of 2016, she received grants to spend two months in London conducting independent research on British colonial history. She received another grant in the fall of 2016 to collect historical materials from the Huntington Library in San Marino, California. Using these resources, she wrote an honors thesis titled Sex, Travel, and the Arabian Nights: Richard Francis Burton’s Literary Career. A separate paper based on this topic won the history department’s 2016 Jacob B. Lassner Award for the best paper on Jewish or Islamic Culture. Sarah also worked as a research assistant for Professor Michael J. Kramer and assisted him in creating online database on the Berkeley Folk Music Festival, which ran from 1958 to 1970. In the spring of 2017, Sarah interned for Legal Assistance Foundation, one of the largest legal aid organizations in the country, where she supported an outreach initiative to suburban Cook County residents in need of legal aid. Sarah originally hails from Dallas, Texas.
