Daniel Egan, Ph.D. has been at UML since 1998. His research addresses how power is organized by dominant social groups on multiple levels – organizational, urban, national, and global – and how subordinate social groups seek to challenge and transform these institutions. Some of his major research projects have addressed radical urban politics, government subsidies for corporations, and the role that war and violence play in neoliberal globalization. He is currently working on a project examining the intersection between military doctrine and social theory.
Within the Sociology Department, Egan is a former Chair of the Department and currently serves Transfer Coordinator and the Personnel Committee Chair. He enjoys teaching core sociological classes such as Introduction to Sociology, Social Theory I & II, and Foundations of Social Analysis.
