Postdoctoral Research Fellow, The Institute at Brown for Environment and Society
Meghan Elizabeth Kallman is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society. She earned her PhD in Sociology in 2016, and is the recipient of two prestigious National Science Foundation grants, as well as grants from the Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy, the Cogut Center, and others. Her work uses organizational theory to make sense of social change—her current research uses a case study of the US Peace Corps to understand how organizations shape the politics of their intrinsically motivated participants. Dr. Kallman also works on network theory and social movements. Her most recent book, called “The Third Sector”, is forthcoming in September with the University of Illinois Press. Her second book, "The Death of Idealism", is in preparation. She is also a 2015-2016 fellow with the Women's Policy Institute of Rhode Island and the founder and director of the Prison Op-Ed Project, a program that works with incarcerated college students in the Rhode Island state prison system.
