Joshua Bloom, PhD
- Assistant Professor
I am interested in the dynamics of insurgent practice and social transformation. My studies of social movements, race, and labor, have been published in American Sociological Review and other venues. I am principal author of Black against Empire: the History and Politics of the Black Panther Party (University of California Press, 2016), which won the American Book Award, and co-editor of Working for Justice: the LA Model of Organizing and Advocacy (Cornell University Press, 2010).
