Langman, Lauren (b. 19xx), professor at the Loyola University in Chicago

  • Loyola University Sociology Dept. Langman faculty webpage
  • Dr. Langman is primarily a social theorist writing in the tradition of the Frankfurt School-especially their early concerns with character and culture, which currently inform questions of identity and hegemony in a global age. His theoretical writing examines the nature of self, subjectivity and modernity dealing with questions such as agency, or its lack, as alienation. His substantive research interests concern the dialects of political economy, culture and identity in such varied forms as Islamic fundamentalism, alternative globalization movements and the carnivalization of culture. Dr. Langman has widely published in these areas and has a forthcoming book on the Carnivalization of America.
