Spring 2016 Interns
Daniel Santos is a senior studying English and Global Culture at Binghamton University. He is interested in the intersection between sound studies and social theory and is currently writing his honors thesis on the relationship between Binghamton University students and residents of the Triple Cities. In the Spring of 2014, he and three other students created the Binghamton Historical Soundwalk Project, which uses historically themed soundwalks, oral histories, and archived sounds in order to create a productive dialogue between students and residents. He loves basketball and Hip Hop and his idols are his mom, Marlo Stanfield, and Kanye West.
Dhruv Seghal is a Senior English major at Binghamton University. I am the captain of Binghamton’s Speech and Debate Team and much of my scholarly interest centers around black studies, indigenous studies, performance studies, and all the intersections in between. After I graduate, I plan to attend Graduate School at the University of Texas, Austin in the Communication Studies Department to continue to pursue my research interests, become more involved as a scholar-activist, and coach and teach undergraduate students in the debate program.
