Cohort 15 — Michigan Alumni List
Associate Professor, Department of Sociology
Indiana University, Bloomington, IN

Dr. Rojas received his PhD in Sociology from the University of Chicago. His research interest is organizational analysis and its intersections with political sociology. His upcoming book, From Black Power to Black Studies: How a Radical Social Movement Became an Academic Discipline (The Johns Hopkins University Press, 2007), uses data from the black studies movement to show how social movements generate lasting organizational change. He has also published in journals such as Social Forces, Rationality and Society, and the Journal of Institutional Economics.  Dr. Rojas's latest book, Party in the Street: The Antiwar Movement and the Democratic Party After 9/11, was published in 2015 by Cambridge University Press. His new project examines how social movements adopt the role of formalized lobby with data on the current anti-war movement. In addition to his research on the black studies movement, Fabio has published papers and edited volume chapters on computer modeling, rational choice theory, and economic sociology. He currently teaches introduction to sociology, economic sociology, social theory and theories of social organization for graduate students.
