Class of 2022
Sean Gallagher was born and raised in Seattle, Washington, and graduated from Stanford University in 2021 with a degree in International Relations and minors in Human Rights and Modern Languages. His coursework covered international security, computer science, and transitional justice. His capstone project focused on the ways that science fiction can be used to challenge and clarify the concept of genocide.
As an M.A. student at CLAS, Sean plans to combine his undergraduate studies in disinformation and genocide to examine the role that information flows have played in genocide in Latin America.
In his free time, Sean enjoys running, reading, and cooking. He’s currently trying to cook his way through Maricel Presilla’s Gran Cocina Latina, which will probably take him all year.
