Hi, I'm Julien Sobel

Aspiring scholar, filmmaker, photographer, and obscure Wikipedia fact enthusiast

I am majoring in Politics (B.A.) and Documentary Production (B.A.) with a minor in Linguistics at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York with the eventual goal of entering political science and IR research. 
My goal is to integrate my documentary film production work with my political theory research. I’ve produced a documentary with local NGOs that aired on a PBS affiliate station. I hope to keep producing socially relevant films, research, and journalism.
I tend to focus my work on labor and migrant rights, political and social theory, and language. I am fluent in French and Spanish, and can do some translation and interpretation from those languages into English. 

I mainly keep the video section of this site up to date. I sometimes add photo stuff, though in general that entire section should be revised at some point. I am starting to post more of my writing on this site, as well as on my social media.
