Biosketch

Daniel Egan, Ph.D., has been at UMass Lowell since 1998. His primary research interest addresses the structural forces that define capitalism and the opportunities available to radical social movements to challenge those forces. His research has examined this at a variety of levels (organizational, urban, national, and global) and time periods. He is currently involved in an extended project examining the different ways in which Marxists have examined the relationship between capitalism, war and revolution.
