Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Brown joined the sociology department at Loyola University Chicago in the fall of 2010 while completing his dissertation at Florida State University. Prior to joining the faculty he taught at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, as well as Florida State University in Tallahassee. His research interests are in the area of collective behavior and social movements. He is especially interested in how politicians and activists use emotions to drum up public support for their policies and causes. Additionally, he is interested in how recent technological advances (e.g. social media and the internet) have changed the way movements mobilize, organize and recruit constituents.
