Obama Power

Dr B. Nadya Jaworsky is a visitor to UCL Geography until the end of November, hosted by the Migration Research Unit.

She is Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology, Masaryk University (Czech Republic), and also Faculty Fellow, The Center for Cultural Sociology, Yale University. She received her B.A. from Wellesley College and her M.A., M.Phil, and PhD from Yale University.

Nadya’s PhD research focused on debates about unauthorized immigrants: ‘It’s just not Main Street anymore!’ Mapping Out the Boundaries of Belonging in a New Immigrant Gateway.

With Jeffrey C. Alexander, she has recently published Obama Power, a cultural sociological analysis of the political performances leading up to the 2012 presidential election.

Her current research focuses on social movement organizations within the immigrant rights movement in the United States, and their mobilisation through the Internet.
