Miscommunicating Social Change analyzes the discourses of three social movements and the alternative media associated with them, revealing that the Enlightenment narrative, though widely critiqued in academia, remains the dominant way of conceptualizing social change in the name of democratization in the post-Soviet terrain. The main argument of this book is that the “progressive” imaginary, which ...

Although criticism of Enlightenment ideas has become widespread within academic circles, the basic Enlightenment narrative – an inexorable movement to a progressive condition – remains a dominant assumption within the discourses of modernization and democratization. This article analyzes how the ‘progressive’ imagination of Euromaidan protesters in Ukraine discursively produced the internal ‘other’ as a singular ...

, , European Journal of Cultural and Political Sociology 2018 Vol. 5 No. 1-2 P. 194-217
In the late 2000s, a number of analysts were optimistic about Brazil’s future. Their expectant analyses did not bear out, however, as a political and economic crisis developed just as Brazil was gearing up to host two mega-events, the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016. This paper has two aims. The ...

The article discusses several approaches to the study of Soviet society drawing on Max Weber’s theoretical models or following a broadly-understood Weberian tradition in historical sociology. Weberian perspectives have been used for the analysis of the Russian Revolution of 1917 and its aftermath. The early Bolshevik Party has been characterized as a community of “ideological ...

Struggles against eviction are key moments in the (re)production of informal housing in Brazilian cities, as they contest the uprooting and displacement of generally low-income families. While recent research has focused on displacement due to the World Cup and Olympic Games mega-events, this paper explores struggles against eviction that are less high profile, underscoring the ...

We discuss the theoretical and applied aspects of coexistence, interaction and confrontation between "modern" and "traditional" forms of social cohesion. We demonstrate the adaptive potential of different types of cohesion in the context of socio-cultural transformations. Drawing on empirical material we analyse the mechanisms and factors of integration and fragmentation at different levels of the ...

Occupying Paulista: Housing activism, the new right and the politics of public space during the Brazilian crisis
, Thesis Eleven 2021 Vol. 164 No. 1 P. 37-53
Brazilian society has frequently been described as polarized during the country’s recent political and economic crisis. In 2018, a wave of opposition to the centre-left Workers’ Party culminated in the election of Jair Bolsonaro, a right-wing populist who portrays the political left as a malevolent force in Brazilian society. In this paper I explore this ...

Axiological-Identitary Collective Action Model (AICAM): A new integrative perspective in the analysis of protest
, , et al., Plos One 2019 Vol. 14 No. 6 P. 1-17
Current predictive models of collective action have devoted little attention to personal values, such as morals or ideology. The present research addresses this issue by incorporating a new axiological path in a novel predictive model of collective action, named AICAM. The axiological path is formed by two constructs: ideology and moral obligation. The model has ...

Players and Arenas aims at promoting the strategic interaction perspective (SIP)—a theoretical effort to bridge the gap between the structural paradigm and cultural theories in political sociology and social movements studies. Structural approaches seek to establish causal links between relatively stable factors (features of the political and economic environment) and a movement’s emergence and success. ...

Причины массового энтузиазма первых советских лет связаны с открывшимися возможностями нового репертуара социальных ролей и социальных лифтов в условиях формирования индустриального массового общества. Специфику этому процессу придала задержка российского общества с освоением ролевых форм идентификации, неразвитость института собственности и ответственности. Политическое дионисийство оказалось более востребованным чем аполлононизм. ...

Homogeneity or Heterogeneity in Mobilization Dynamics? Bridging and Homophily within United States Strike Waves in the Late Nineteenth Century

This study evaluates existent social movement literature on this subject and builds upon it using theories within the field of social networks and segregation. The study at hand synthesizes theories of bridging and homophily with undercurrents from ...

Extractive capital and multi-scalar environmental politics: interpreting the exit of Rio Tinto from the diamond fields of Central India
, , Third World Quarterly 2021 Vol. 42 No. 8 P. 1770-1787
Rio Tinto had been developing a diamond mining project in Madhya Pradesh for a decade when in 2017 it hastily abandoned the project. We analyse this counterintuitive exit through an ethnographic approach nested within a qualitative case study framework. We argue that the exit was caused by multi-scalar politics. Local protests over livelihood and labour issues –pre-emptively rearticulated by regional ...
