Fabio Rojas is a professor of sociology in the College of Arts and Sciences at IU Bloomington. His main research interest is organizational analysis and its intersections with political sociology. His upcoming book, “From Black Power to Black Studies: How a Radical Social Movement Became an Academic Discipline,” uses data from the black studies movement to show how social movements generate lasting organizational change.
His new project examines how social movements adopt the role of formalized lobby with data on the current anti-war movement. In addition to his research on the black studies movement, Rojas has published papers and edited volume chapters on computer modeling, rational choice theory and economic sociology.
