Dr Sarah Marsden

Senior Lecturer in Radicalisation and Protest in a Digital Age

Research Overview

My research takes an interdisciplinary approach to social movements, protest, terrorism and political violence. I look at transnational social movements, violent militant networks, grassroots activists, and those practicing everyday forms of resistance from across a range of ideological positions including militant Islamists, anti-fascists, radical environmental activists, and far-right religious nationalists.
