Sybilla Pereira

Junior Dean

Outside of office hours, the Junior Deans oversee non-academic student discipline, and provide welfare support to students.

“Hello – I am Sybilla, glad to be entering my fourth year here at Somerville as a Junior Dean. I am a doctoral student in Ancient Philosophy – I try to understand what Plato’s conception of philosophy and rhetoric in democratic Athens can tell us about how ways of arguing affect political discourse and communities for better or worse. Being familiar with existential and academic challenges myself I found the support network of college and department life very valuable, so I decided to train to join these networks and do my bit to help.”
