Sean Malloy is an associate professor of History/Critical Race & Ethnic Studies (CRES) and a founding faculty member at University of California, Merced. His research interests include issues of colonialism, war, white supremacy, and morality in U.S. foreign relations. Malloy’s early work focused on nuclear history as a way of examining the intersection between science, ethics, and decision making. More recently he has explored the radical internationalism of the Black Panther Party (BPP) and its relationship to the Third World, the Cold War, and neo-liberal globalization. He is also in the early stages of a project examining orientalism and colonialism in virtual spaces through the medium of video games such as Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Medal of Honor.
