Brianna Hernandez joined the International Relations program in 2018. She is pursuing her PhD as well as the Certificate in Women and Gender Studies and one in National Security Studies. Prior to attending FIU, Brianna received her BA from the University of Miami where she double majored in History and Political Science and completed minors in Sociology and Philosophy. Miss Hernandez is interested in the role of language as a product and producer of the actors and actions that comprise the international system and its relation to power dynamics. She believes that if we subvert conventional and problematic binaries, then we can work towards a reality where discourse and policy measures appropriately address the complex realities of agency, vulnerability, security, conflict, peace, and governance.
Brianna Hernandez’s research interests include: Strategic Studies, Sexual and Gender Based Violence, Gender and Security, Conflict and Conflict Resolution, Terrorism, and Harry Potter, always Harry Potter.
