Samuel R. Galloway ’06
Researching democracy, sovereignty and solidarity in political thought and practice.
After earning their Ph. D. in Political Science at the University of Chicago, Samuel R. Galloway joined the Political Science department at Purchase College. Their courses explore topics such as protest, media, biopolitics, law, aesthetics, and ideology at the intersections of race, sexuality, gender, class, ability, and citizenship. Dr. Galloway’s research examines questions of democracy, sovereignty, and solidarity in contemporary and canonical political thought and practice. Their current book project is Cruising Politics: Affect, Assemblage, Agonism, a queer critical theoretical account of how 21st century American politics is being shaped by the fleeting, anonymous, and public affairs of agonistic democrats, from Anonymous hacktivism to Black Lives Matter protest.
