Jacob Maguire


Jacob Maguire is a first-year master’s student in American Studies. Maguire spent time doing speechwriting and political consulting in New York after graduating from Amherst College in 2007. He worked for many prominent political figures including John Edwards and President Barack Obama, but decided that his passion lay in researching, writing and teaching politics. He chose to return to academia, and began his studies in politics and race at UT this fall. “I think teaching is really important,” says Maguire. “I hope to someday be a teacher who can use the classroom to have really meaningful interactions with students that will also enhance my own research.”
