Sam Samore


I am a third year PhD student in the English department at Penn, where I am also pursuing a certificate in cinema and media studies. I have a BA in English from Brown University. 


My research interests include television studies, political economy, and critical theory. I am particularly interested in youth involvement in global communist movements, the representation of high school on TV, and theories of adolescence. 


I have been a TA for courses on queer studies and contemporary political art. I also have experience teaching at the high school and grade school level. I was one of the organizers of the "Spinoza After Marx" conference in May 2021, hosted by the Penn Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures.
