Welcome to the website and blog of Edward Avery-Natale, Ph.D. I am currently a visiting assistant professor inNorth Dakota State University’s sociology department where I am teaching Research Methods, Qualitative Methods, Identifications, Political Sociology, and Social Movements during the 2013-2014 academic year. My upcoming book focuses on the ways in which members of Philadelphia’s anarcho-punk subculture narratively construct their identifications. The various chapters are tied together through a focus on the ethical nature of the identification narratives with a particular focus on the application of Sartrean approaches to ethics and agency.
My areas of expertise include identity theories, psychoanalytic theories, postmodern and post-structuralist social theory, ethics, anarchism, popular culture, youth culture, political sociology, and the sociology of race, ethnicity, and racism. In my sociological work, I focus on the ways in which these different fields of study come together in people’s lives.
