Edward Bell, Professor

PhD, Sociology, McGill University

Edward Bell is a sociologist interested in the origins of political attitudes and behaviours, and in political movements. In addition to examining the traditional antecedents of political phenomena, such as class, gender, age, and ethnicity, his work seeks to integrate the notion of heritability into analyses of politics through the use of twin and family studies.
