PhD Mid-term seminar: Identity, Meaning, and Participation in the Radical Left
Colm Flaherty, PhD candidate, Department of Sociology
The aim of the dissertation project is to explore the construction of meaning and both individual and collective identity in radical leftist groups. Specifically, I am interested in how these processes affect both the form and amount of political participation on a micro (individual), meso (group), and macro (societal) level. The dissertation project, through the use of both quantitative and qualitative methods, looks specifically at radical groups in Sweden and the United States.
