Welcome to my online abode!

My name is Zachary M. Wilmot, and I am a PhD Candidate in Sociology at Brown University. My research focuses on the cultural politics – and political cultures – of revolutionary processes throughout history and around the world. More broadly, my research is concerned with the interplay of culture, politics, and history in the process of social change. I can also be found at LinkedInAcademia.edu, and SocArXiv, and I can be reached at zachary_wilmot@brown.edu.

My current projects focus on the creation of dynamic revolutionary political cultures and discourse in Iran and Nicaragua from 1979 until 2009, social media use in the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, and the connections between revolutions and democratic outcomes in Poland, Nicaragua, Mozambique, and Iran.

This coming August I will be presenting “Revolution for Whom?  Miskitos and Sandinistas in Revolutionary Nicaragua,”  at the American Sociological Association’s Annual Meeting in Montreal, and in November I will present “Democracy through Revolution: Voice and Rights in the Revolutionary Process” at the Social Science History Association’s Annual meeting, also in Montreal.
