Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change was established in 1977 by founding editor Louis Kriesberg, the Maxwell Professor of Social Conflict Studies at Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. Kriesberg's vision was to create a scholarly forum that would encourage dialogue and cross-fertilization across a number of related but too disconnected research literatures: social movements, conflict resolution, and social and political change. For 30 years RSMCC has been publishing top-level empirical research that has helped define and advance the fields reflected in the series title.
Among the many scholars who have contributed to the series are Elise Boulding, John Burton, Amitai Etzioni, Myra Marx Ferree, John Foran, Johan Galtung, William Gamson, Andre Gunder Frank, Craig Jenkins, John Lofland, Jane Mansbridge, Doug McAdam, John D. McCarthy, Alberto Melucci, Christopher Mitchell, Pamela Oliver, Karl Dieter Opp, Sarah Soule, Jackie Smith, David Snow, Verta Taylor, Charles Tilly, and Mayer Zald.Call for Book Proposals
