Political Science


Zoe is a first-year graduate student in political theory. Prior to Brown, she received her B.A. in

political science with honors from San Francisco State University. She is interested in exploring

how the rise of neoliberal capitalism shapes contemporary formations and understandings of

political power and authority, and how these understandings affect political movements.

Broadly, her interests include Marxism and the Frankfurt School, technology and politics,

anarchism, and the political theory of Hannah Arendt. In the digital era of “there is no

alternative,” she wants to ask: How can the imaginaries and praxes of political collectives

formulate other ways of living and acting together?
