About Jocelyne Scott

Jocelyne B. Scott is ABD in the department and her dissertation, "Friendship on Sorority Row: Ritual, Privilege, and Activism", intervenes into a broader cultural conversation that tends to interpret sorority women as bodies—bodies for men's sexual consumption, binge-drinking bodies, and hazing/hazed bodies—through ethnographic research conducted with collegiate and alumnae sorority women. She received her M.A. in Gender Studies from Indiana University and holds B.A. degrees in French and International Relations from Bucknell University.
