Peter Gallay is an adjunct professor in the Quinnipiac University Seminars Program. He teaches QU301: South Africa- From A Tourist to Township Perspective and QU301: The Global Community Through Cinema.
Gallay first became interested in South Africa during his initial visit in 1997. It was during this trip where he met Tamarin Simpson, founder of the Tippy Toes Foundation. Since then he has had the opportunity to visit South Africa on two other occasions. He is interested in looking at the lasting effects of racism socially and culturally in post-apartheid South Africa.
Gallay graduated from Quinnipiac University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Production and a Master’s Degree in Interactive Media. He also works as a Multimedia Producer at Quinnipiac University, focusing on producing audio, video, and multimedia content.
In January 2011 he released his latest documentary Valor From Darkness in collaboration with Quinnipiac University’s Information Services and The Albert Schweitzer Institute. Valor From Darkness explores the modern history of dictatorship, revolution, and reconciliation in one of the western hemisphere’s poorest countries, Nicaragua.
