Class Notes

Sophie Hoyt '11
Sophie Hoyt just graduated from The University of Chicago with her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Language. Sophie’s thesis, “Surviving in the Multiracial Body: Octavia Butler and Multiracial Science Fiction,” won the Janel Mueller Undergraduate Thesis Prize. This award recognizes exceptional undergraduate research and writing. Sophie attributes her writing skills to the tutelage she received from faculty members Joan Wentworth and Gene Santarelli during her time at St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s.
