Since the election of Donald Trump, the United States has seen an outpouring of protest activity. Professor Han, expert in the study of civic and political participation, collective action, organizing, and social change, will discuss the social science research around when protest matters. Professor Han will synthesize research about the ways in which organization and movements can translate protest and participation into political influence, and discuss the challenges and opportunities organizations face.

Hahrie Han is the Anton Vonk Professor of Political Science at UC, Santa Barbara. She is the author of three published books: How Organizations Develop Activists: Civic Associations and Leadership in the 21st Century, Groundbreakers: How Obama’s 2.2 Million Volunteers Transformed Campaigning in America, and Moved to Action: Motivation, Participation, and Inequality in American Politics. Through her research, she partners with a wide range of civic and political organizations interested in organizing, movement-building, and building power for social change in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere. She received her Ph.D. in American Politics from Stanford University.
