Brianna Hernandez is a Ph.D. Candidate in the International Relations program and earned her MA in International Studies en-route. Prior to starting at FIU in 2018, she received her BA from the University of Miami where she double majored in History and Political Science and completed minors in Sociology and Philosophy. In addition to pursuing her Ph.D., she has completed FIU certificates in Women and Gender Studies and in National Security Studies. 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 constructions of 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 Norm Translation, Feminist Security Studies, Conflict and Conflict Resolution, Global Governance, Advocacy, and Harry Potter… always Harry Potter.
