About Dr Joseph Ibrahim

Joseph is a political sociologist who has research interests in social and political theory, political mobilisations, collective action and community values. His research to date has been focused on the political culture and dynamics of consensus and conflict within groups, and his areas of expertise straddle sociology and politics. He has recently completed projects on the application of social theory for understanding social movement dynamics, the politics of the alternative globalization movement, student politics and protests, and social movement emergence after the global financial crash.

Joseph has published widely in the areas of his expertise including a sole authored monograph, numerous peer reviewed (high impact and high quality) journal articles, and he has been the guest editor of two special issues of the journal Contention: The multidisciplinary journal of social protest. He currently sits on the editorial review board of the book series Transforming Capitalism: Rowman and Littlefield publishers. He has reviewed book proposals for Routledge publishers as well as numerous papers for a range of journals including Antipode, Contemporary Social Science, Contention, Social Movement Studies, and Policing and Society. In July 2016 he is to give a keynote lecture to The British Sociological Association, Inaugural conference of the Bourdieu Study Group.

Current Teaching

Joseph is Director of Studies for PhD and MRes projects and teaches on the following BA (Hons) Sociology modules:

  • Culture, Media and Society

Research Interests

Joseph's current research projects are on student politicization and political mobilizations in times of austerity. He is currently writing and editing a book to be published by Routledge for the Radical History and Politics series (with Dr John Roberts, Brunel university). The book will explore political parties, social movements, and trade unions in the 21st Century.
