Joel Z. Garrod is a historical and political sociologist who conducts research on the political economy of capitalism; in particular, on globalization, technology, corporate power, and the transformation of the nation-state. His research in these various areas is concerned with tracking the institutional reorientations whereby new global assemblages of territory, authority, and rights emerge out of still-existing national formations. His approach to these reorientations focuses on tracking changes to property relations – that is, the rights, entitlements, or obligations in or to things that allow a social formation to reproduce itself – and the practical and theoretical implications of those changes, especially as they relate to issues of power and social justice.
