Kazimierz Slomczynski

Mershon affiliate Kazimierz M. Slomczynski, professor emeritus of sociology, has been inducted as a member of the Academia Europaea (known also as Academy of Europe, AE), an organization of eminent scholars whose aim is to promote interdisciplinary research and advise governments and international organization in scientific matters.

With Mershon affiliates Craig Jenkins, senior research scientist and professor emeritus of sociology, and Irina Tomescu-Dubrow, visiting scholar in sociology, Slomczynski received a four-year, $1.4 million award from the National Science Foundation for the project, “Survey Data Recycling: New Analytic Framework, Integrated Database and Tools for Cross-National Social, Behavioral and Economic Research,” starting Sept. 1, 2017.

This award grew out of a 2016-17 Mershon research grant on State Responses to Contention and New Waves of Protest as well as a Mershon-sponsored conference on Democracy, the State and Protest: International Perspectives on Methods for the Study of Protest, held May 2017. 

Previous Mershon Center grants supported projects on When and How State Reponses to Contention Generate New Waves of Protest (2014-15), Interdisciplinary Studies of Political Behavior: From Elections to Protests (2013-14), Nationalism and Conflict: Interdisciplinary Methodological Symposium (2012-13), and Symbolic Opposition to the USA Patriot Act (2007-08). 

Slomczynski is director of the Cross-National Studies: Interdisciplinary Research and Training Program (CONSIRT), a joint program of the Ohio State College of Arts and Sciences and the Social Sciences Division of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
