Senior Spotlight: Nan Elpers

 

Nan

My name is Nan, and I’ve been a Psychology major and FemGen minor while at CC. In light of Covid-19, I will be heading back to Kentucky for the summer, where my mother and I will enjoy many rosé evenings together. After that, I have accepted a lab manager position at Reed College with our own (formerly) Kevin Holmes. We’ll be investigating the role of language on thought, including how English language structures encourage racial essentialism and how people can self-sooth by labeling their negative emotions. I’m excited to be starting off in psychology with a professor and research program dedicated to some of the content and sensibilities I’ve cultivated here in the FGS department. You have each made me better.
