Guest presentation by Prof. Eric Schoon (The Ohio State University), a comparative-historical sociologist whose research examines the roles of culture and institutions in contentious politics. Central to his research agenda is the study of legitimacy—including how it is defined, how it is invoked, and its variable effects—in the context of political violence.

His interest in classification and boundary dynamics has also informed work in substantive areas including crime, attitudes towards immigrants, and organizational processes. Additionally, he is engaged in research advancing relational and configurational methods of analysis.

Location: Ripton Room (#201) at Scott Hall
