Jon Shefner of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville will deliver a lecture on "Varied Paths to Austerity: The Evolution of a Hegemonic Policy."
Professor Shefner's work is centered on globalization and political economy, and in the widely defined field of political sociology. He is interested in explaining different national trajectories and global stratification, and looking at the activity of social movements and states. His work is multidisciplinary, drawing from anthropology, economics, history, and political science, as well as sociology. He has conducted field research in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, New Orleans, LA, and Quito, Ecuador, and has also explored other academic interests in Nicaragua and Wales.
