Dr Sara Felix

I’m a Learning Developer at LSE LIFE, and I joined the LSE in September 2016.  I’ve taught in higher education for over 10 years, in countries such as Kazakhstan, Poland, Qatar, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. My work at universities in these countries has focused on developing students’ academic literacies and study skills.

I graduated in Politics and International Affairs (specifically East Asian Studies) from the University of Mary Washington.  I moved on to specialize in International Education, earning a master’s degree from Framingham State University.  My doctorate is from the University of Sussex, where I studied the development of criticality in undergraduate students in Kazakhstan from a sociological perspective.

My areas of interest revolve around criticality and argumentation.  As such, I hope to help LSE students engage with critical thinking in their fields and develop their own personal, academic arguments.  Because arguments can communicated through writing and speaking, I take an interest in helping student develop both skill sets for academic contexts.

I was once labeled a global nomad by a student when he discovered I have lived in sixteen different countries.  I like this label, and feel it is because of my nomadic upbringing that I’ve become passionate about social justice, politics, and (of course) travel.
