Timothy Patrick Moran
Associate Professor, Director of Graduate Studies
Areas of Interest
Global/Comparative Sociology; Global Inequalities; Political Economy; Quantitative Methods
Timothy's research and writing focuses on social inequality and mobility, global political economy, Latin American studies, and quantitative methods in the social sciences. Together with Roberto Patricio Korzeniewicz, he recently published Unveiling Inequality: A World-Historical Perspective (Russell Sage Foundation, 2009). At present he is working on three lines of research: 1) A project seeking to rethink, theoretically and empirically, stratification and social mobility from a global perspective; 2) A project investigating how "globalization" affects the social rights of citizenship at the start of the 21st Century; and 3) A National Science Foundation funded project on contentious collective action in Latin America.
