The Case for Identity Politics

Sneha Pandya

English 2017

Sneha is a fourth-year English major with a minor in Psychology. She's relatively famous in CSSH for having dabbled in four different majors at Northeastern, ultimately deciding to pursue a degree in explaining that women can in fact specialize in James Joyce to the rest of her peers. Her thesis and research focus has been second-generation identity in the South Asian Diaspora, which led her to consider the importance of identity in politics. On campus, she's been greatly involved in sorority life and advocating for women's spaces of undergraduate collegiate development. Off campus, she maintains a reading/lifestyle/thoughts blog and silently wishes Boston winter will have mercy on her Florida soul while conversely wishing for climate change to reverse itself. You can find her at Pavement Coffeehouse ordering green tea lattes to ignore her real cravings for sweet tea, sharing her theory on Harry Potter house sorting (identity crises, no more!), and listening to the Avett Brothers.

History 2019

Sean is a second year History student with a minor in Chinese. His areas of interest are America and China, and he is specifically interested in labor history, economic history, political economy, and the history of social movements. He is a proud member of Students for Justice in Palestine and supporter of various Left groups at Northeastern. Inspired by the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci, his New Years resolution is to build hegemony by engaging in (and hopefully winning) arcane debates with Brooklynite socialists on Facebook. When not pontificating about whether or not open borders is a feasible Left demand, Sean enjoys playing basketball, watching re-runs of The Office, sending Eric Andre videos to his friends, and roaming around Boston.

He's spent countless hours pushing hospital stretchers, hanging out with seniors who live alone, advocating for better mental health services at Northeastern, and learning about health disparities on a local and global level. Because of all of these experiences, he hopes to be a physician and health policy influencer one day. For now, he's just a movie buff, podcast obsessive, and diehard Philadelphia sports fan.
