Sociology Speakers Series: Michael Drieling

March 23, 2018 -
12:00pm to 1:30pm

In “Networks of Power, Networks of Resistance,” Professor Michael Drieling (University of Oregon) discusses how social network analysis elucidates our concepts of power, influence, and cohesion. Building on the classic works of C. Wright Mills and G. William Domhoff, Dreiling applies these tools to wide-ranging forms of collective action, from social movements rooted in civil society to elite institutions and corporate dominance of policymaking in the US and Japan. 

Drieling’s forthcoming book, Energy Industrial Complexes, analyzes the energy industry in the aftermath of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear plant disaster.
