The Colonization of Online Discourse: Pandemic Resistance in Advanced Capitalism
Alexander is a senior at Brown University studying sociology with a special interest in all things theory, especially the debate between critical theory and post-structuralism. His ultimate goal in life is to bring sociological theory to the general public, as he believes in theory’s ability to ignite the imagination towards creative approaches to social problems. His eponymous YouTube channel with over 350,000 subscribers where he covers queer culture through a sociological lens confirms the possibility of the project. Outside of his main projects, he is also involved in student government, on-campus fellowships, original research, and an upcoming self-produced album.
