Current Position: Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Political Science, University of California, Riverside.
“I am continually struck by the PCI faculty’s and graduate students’ skillful and generative engagement across interdisciplinary lines. In PCI-related seminars across many departments, I found not only the theories and methodologies I needed for my research but also the multidisciplinary intellectual community I needed as a scholar and a person. PCI faculty have provided invaluable mentorship as I developed my dissertation research on political identification and intersectional antiracist politics. I found my home on campus when I discovered this community’s deep commitment to centering questions of power, oppression, and resistance in their teaching and research.” – Lisa Beard
