About the Speaker

 

Jeffrey C. Alexander is the Lillian Chavenson Saden Professor of Sociology at Yale University. Along with Philip Smith he is Co-Director of the Center for Cultural Sociology (CCS). Jeffrey Alexander works in the areas of theory, culture, and politics. An exponent of the “strong program” in cultural sociology, he has investigated the cultural codes and narratives that inform diverse areas of social life. 

About the Workshop Series

Moscow Culture Workshop brings together distinguished scholars in cultural sociology and allied domains from across the globe to share theoretical and conceptual perspectives that resonate widely with the Center’s research agenda and beyond.

The Workshop embraces the ethos of contributing meaningfully across the dimensions of global cultural sociology. It also aims to provide an invigorating and empowering forum so leading research hubs in the field and wider audiences can reinforce and push the frontiers of their partnership networks.

The Workshop has its conception and imperatives largely inspired by other similar academic endeavors that have proved a success, including: the Yale CCS Workshop, Konstanzer Meisterklasse, Fall Conference of the Center for Cultural Sociology at Masaryk University, and the CCS North: Cultural Sociology Discussion Group.
