Charlie Eaton

Assistant Professor, Sociology, UC Merced

Charlie Eaton is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at UC Merced.

Eaton's research investigates the role of organizations in the interplay between economic elites and disadvantaged social groups. His work asks what forms of organization strengthen elite efforts to consolidate power in politics and the economy? Alternatively, what are effective organizational structures and strategies by which non-elites can achieve more equitable distributions of power, wealth, and status?
