Pyar Seth, Trinity University
Pyar Seth is a student at Trinity University with majors in political science and African American Studies and minors in education and history. Mr. Seth research interests include class meaning, citizenship, democracy, liberalism, nationalism, postmodernism, political philosophy, and race. His research agenda more specifically relies on the logic of scholars such as W.E.B DuBois, Malcolm X, and Michel Foucault. Pyar hopes to consider the extent to which these scholars’ various notions of power and freedom come to complicate our understanding of the state and everyday life. He is also currently working on a paper with Dr. Sarah Erickson on democratic enthusiasm and racial attitudes. After graduation, Pyar plans to pursue a doctoral degree in political science with a concentration in political theory.
