What are the causes and consequences of political-institutional change? What are the mechanisms through which cultures and identities inform these transformations? And how do political agents—experts, policy entrepreneurs, social movement actors—promote and resist change? This workshop brings together a diverse group of comparative-historical sociologists to consider the theoretical and empirical questions of social change. While grappling with these challenging issues, the workshop’s broader aim is to assess the state of current research, identify intellectual gaps, and collectively develop a research agenda.
