About Erik Larson

Larson pursues research interests at the intersection of economic sociology, political sociology, and the sociology of law, examining the processes through which economic institutions and actors are constructed in a global environment and how these constructions shape subsequent economic activity.
He has been engaged in two research projects: a study of small, new stock exchanges in Fiji, Ghana, and Iceland and an examination of affirmative action policies targeted toward groups identified as indigenous.
EDUCATION: BA Hamline University; MA, PhD, University of Minnesota.
