Rachel L. Einwohner
Rachel L. Einwohner is professor of sociology and (by courtesy) political science at Purdue University, where she is also a faculty affiliate in Jewish studies. Her research focuses on the dynamics of protest and resistance. Her work asks questions related to protest emergence and effectiveness, the role of gender and other identities in protest dynamics, protesters' sense of efficacy, and the creation of solidarity in diverse movements. She has explored these topics with studies of a wide variety of cases, including the US animal rights movement, the 2017 Women's March, and Jewish resistance during the Holocaust. She is also part of an interdisciplinary research team that is using Twitter data to examine diversity and inclusion in contemporary social movements. She has also co-edited two volumes: The Oxford Handbook of U.S. Women's Social Movement Activism and Identity Work in Social Movements.
