You have a really unique ability to take popular forms like horror movies seriously and to make serious topics like structural violence popular and accessible. Your peers have been really fortunate to see what insights you bring to analyzing and theorizing media – and I know I’ve learned a lot from you, too. Please continue to share your mind with others – our knowledge not only of movies, but of our world and the structures of power that shape it, is enriched by everything you see and say.” - Michael Dango</p></em><div class="m-3 clearfix"><a href="/commencement/senior-profiles/index.php" class="d-inline-block pull-right"><i class="fa fa-refresh fa-2x"/></a></div></div></div></div>
