Sophie Brady, GS, MUS

Community College Teaching Fellow

Sophie A. Brady is a PhD candidate in musicology at Princeton University. Her scholarly interests include music and decolonization, twentieth-century experimental composition, global popular music, and the history of sound reproduction technology. Her dissertation examines the history of the musical avant-garde outside of Europe and North America, focusing on experimentation and recording at Francophone African radio stations in the second half of the twentieth century.

"At a research-focused institution like Princeton, teaching experiences can sometimes be difficult for graduate students to find. The Community College Teaching Fellowship is a terrific opportunity for any graduate student who is interesting in developing their teaching. But, more importantly, this fellowship also provides a tangible way for Princeton graduate students to get to know other academic institutions in the region and participate in community colleges’ mission of improving access to quality higher education for everyone across New Jersey.

GradFUTURES understands that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to graduate education, and I am always impressed by the breadth of offerings and opportunities available to students at Princeton. The Community College Teaching Fellowship provided me with hands-on, practical teaching experience and the opportunity to benefit from one-on-one mentorship."
