Craig Calhoun

Craig Calhoun was born in the small town of Watseka, Illinois, but that was merely the metropolis with a hospital nearest to the smaller town of Cissna Park where his father was preaching. He has lived many places since, from Hollywood, California to Khartoum, Sudan. He is currently President of the Social Science Research Council and University Professor and Professor of Sociology and History at New York University.

Some of his Calhoun's books include Cosmopolitanism and Belonging (2007), Neither Gods nor Emperors: Students and the Struggle for Democracy in China (California, 1995), Critical Social Theory: Culture, History and the Challenge of Difference (Blackwell, 1995), Nationalism (Minnesota, 1997), Nationalism Matters (Routledge, 2006), Sociology in America: the ASA Centennial History (Chicago 2006), and The Radicalism of Tradition (University of Chicago Press in 2007).
