Steven Pfaff Vitae

Pfaff’s current research projects explore the dynamics of spontaneous mobilization in repressive states, religiously-based collective action, the emergence and diffusion of Evangelicalism in 16th Century Central Europe, the causes of mutiny in Britain’s Royal Navy during the age of sail, mosque-state relations and their consequences for Muslims in Western polities, and the political process of secularization in Europe during the 19th and 20th Centuries.
