blog rec: revolutionology

Ryan Calder, a Berekeley soc grad student, has a new blog called “Revolutionology.” It’s pretty simple. He’s doing field work in Arab Spring nations and his blog records his field work. Now, he’s in Libya (!). Sample posts: Libya’s internal security apparatus, California is just like Libya, and Fast and the Furious: Benghazi Drift (my retitling). Much needed field work, but be safe!

  3. Wow, this is amazing. I wish he would say more about how he ended up in Libya — I assume he was there before the rebellion broke out. We desperately need more sociologists on the ground in these kinds of places.
