Current Research:

Professor Gorman studies how power relations between groups affect how individuals understand and construct the symbolic boundaries separating “us” from “them” in the Middle East and around the world. He uses qualitative, statistical, and computational methods. His work has been published in journals including the American Journal of Sociology, Social Forces, Sociological Forum, and Sociological Perspectives. Professor Gorman is currently conducting research on the determinants of pro-global attitudes, how Tunisia's successful transition to democracy has created new social conflicts, and under what circumstances people come to view outgroups as less-than-human.
