Portrait of Sophia Mizouni

Sophia Mizouni holds a French baccalauréat from the Collège Marie de France, a bachelor’s in landscape architecture from the Université de Montréal, a master’s in landscape architecture from the University of Guelph and a Master of Arts and doctorate in French language and literature from Boston University.

At Norwich University, Mizouni teaches French language, literature, and interdisciplinary courses in French studies. She serves as the French Program director, guiding students through the curriculum while providing study abroad opportunities. In 2018, she worked abroad as the on-site faculty at the pilot Norwich EU-NATO program in Strasbourg, France. 

Mizouni’s current research focuses on French literature, theater and film. Through her research, she draws on gender and urban theories to read the landscapes depicted in literature to decode what they reveal about people — more precisely, how these landscapes shape and reshape identities and actions. By examining texts through the lens of urban theory, she is able to bring out the cultural ramifications of landscapes and show how these spaces alter human interactions.
