Ben Taylor | Graduate Student

Program of Study: Finance


Ben Taylor graduated from The College of Wooster in Wooster, OH, in spring 2016 with a double major in political science and English as well as a minor in philosophy. While at Wooster, he completed a senior thesis examining the role that popular media play in generating democratic “consent,” analyzing how Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy both reflected anxieties regarding terrorism and provided support for the ongoing efforts on behalf of the U.S. surveillance state. Presently in his second year of the political science M.A. program at Virginia Tech, his current research focuses on power’s material manifestations, specifically spatial segregation and financial inequality as it intersects with contemporary and historical modes of otherization.
