Jeremy Wheatley

Program Coordinator

Jeremy began working as LSM’s Program Coordinator in August 2017. He is a graduate of Salve Regina University with a B.A. in Anthropology & Sociology and holds a MA in Near Eastern Studies from New York University’s Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies. At the Kevorkian Center his work focused mainly on the relationship between visual media and state power, exploring first the ways the Islamic State’s media replicates, and often mimics, methods used by the West. In keeping with the general theme of vision and power, though diverging slightly to more emotionally bearable media, his MA thesis examined the political potential of Snapchat and Twitter in the post-Arab Spring Middle East. During his time at the Kevorkian Center he also worked as an intern at PAX for Peace, where he conducted human rights advocacy targeted at the United Nations on issues ranging from the use of cluster munitions and white phosphorus to the ongoing humanitarian and refugee crises in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen.
