Rachel L. Einwohner

Associate Professor of Sociology
College of Liberal Arts Award of Outstanding Undergraduate Teacher

Rachel Einwohner received her Ph.D. in Sociology at the University of Washington in Seattle in 1997 and joined the Purdue faculty in 1998.  Her research focuses on the dynamics of protest and resistance, and her interests include questions related to protest effectiveness, the role of gender and other identities in protest dynamics, and mobilization under repressive conditions.  She has explored these topics with theoretically-driven analyses of a diverse set of movements and cases of protest, including the U.S. animal rights movement, the college-based anti-sweatshop movement, and Jewish resistance during the Holocaust.  Her published work has appeared in her field’s most prestigious journals, including the American Sociological Review, the American Journal of Sociology, and Social Problems as well as Mobilization (a top specialty journal devoted to research on protest).
