Matthew Stein

I study: “Race and ethnic politics, and American social movements”

This fall I’m teaching: “Introduction to United States Politics, and Racial and Ethnic Minorities in American Politics”

I’m excited to be here because: “I’m excited about preparing Lafayette students to learn about the ongoing importance and relevance of both historic and contemporary political events and institutions. Too often students can feel disconnected from their sociopolitical worlds, but I want to make sure that my students come away from class understanding that politics is an important, and often omnipresent, part of their environment. Perhaps most importantly, however, is that I want students to come away feeling empowered to enact change in their communities as we must think, work, and act collectively to make the world a better place for all.”
