Dr Joosse, James Paul
Paul Joosse received his PhD in Sociology from the University of Alberta, Canada. Prior to joining the University of Hong Kong, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in Surveillance and Criminology, supervised by Kevin Haggerty, and an Editorial Assistant at the British Journal of Sociology. He is also currently a Senior Research Affiliate with the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security, and Society (TSAS).
Paul is a qualitative ethnographic researcher whose research and teaching interests fall into the realms of criminology, social theory, media studies, and the globalization of social movements. Cross-cutting through these fields is an interest specifically in inspirational leadership and the decentralization processes of organizational hierarchies. His empirical work has examined landowner movements that resist oil and gas extraction, green anarchist movements and ‘ecoterrorism,’ processes of social exclusion and radicalization in the Somali-Canadian diaspora, and the formation of charismatic bonds in new religious movements (colloquially, ‘cults’). His research has been supported by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Canada Graduate Scholarship, the University of Alberta PhD Dissertation Fellowship, and Public Safety Canada.
