Assistant de recherche
Luis Antonio Vila-Henninger (firstname.lastname@example.org) holds a PhD in sociology from the University of Arizona. He is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow for the European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant “Qualidem”: “Eroding Democracies. A qualitative (re-)appraisal of how policies shape democratic linkages in Western democracies" (PIs: Claire Dupuy and Virginie Van Ingelgom). Luis' dissertation and individual qualitative research use semi-structured interview data to analyze how voters’ justifications of their positions on economic policies help to maintain or undermine the political legitimacy—and by extension the political authority—of said policies. His qualitative work also investigates how such justifications are structured by economic inequality, partisanship, and cultural factors—such as political values, neoliberal ideology, and norms of self-interest. Luis’ work with Qualidem uses secondary qualitative analysis to investigate how changes in public policy shape the ways in which citizens in western democracies understand their connections with national and supranational political systems. Luis' research areas include economic sociology, political sociology, the sociology of culture, qualitative methods, and sociological theory. His work has appeared in The Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour, Sociology Compass, Sociological Perspectives, The Sociological Quarterly, Sociological Inquiry, and The Bulletin of Sociological Methodology. Luis is currently working on a book manuscript that is under contract with Palgrave Macmillan entitled Social Justification and Political Legitimacy: How Voters Rationalize Direct Democratic Economic Policy in America.
