Sara Mitcho's research lies at the intersection of the study of social movements, cultural studies, gender, race, and ethics. Her research on protest is focused on the United States, with an eye toward its place in the greater global context. In her current project, Dr. Mitcho critiques our reliance on a violent/nonviolent dichotomy to make ethical judgments about protest and proposes an alternative. In her future work, Dr. Mitcho will expand on one particular aspect of her ethical framework to explore the tactical use of vulnerability in protest, its utility, and its ethical implications.
