  • Comparative political sociology
  • Comparative analysis of development
  • Urban social movements
  • Popular organization in Latin America, particularly Brazil

Robert Gay is a sociologist whose research focuses on clientelism, democracy and civil society in Brazil and other countries of Latin America. His expertise in this area informs three of his courses: "The Sociology of Development," "Industrialization, Dictatorship & Democracy" and "Post-Authoritarian Latin America." In the former, Gay examines the development experience of Latin America and the conflicting ways in which this process has been explained. In "Industrialization, Dictatorship & Democracy,"

Gay focuses his students' attention on the struggle for democracy in Western Europe, North and South America. In "Post-Authoritarian Latin America," Gay examines recent processes and trends in the region through life history and ethnography. In addition, Gay also teaches "Introduction to Sociology" and "Methods of Social Research & Analysis."

Gay was appointed Director of CISLA in July, 2005.

Gay has published a life history/biography of a drug dealer in Rio de Janeiro, a project that was supported by an American Council of Learned Societies grant. Lucia: Testimonies of a Brazilian Drug Dealer’s Woman, published by Temple University Press (2005), tells the story of one woman who was closely involved with drug gang life in Rio de Janeiro throughout the 1990s. Through a series of conversations with the author, “Lucia” describes conditions of poverty, violence and injustice, and in doing so, explains why women like her become involved with drugs and gangs, and why the situation is unlikely to change. View the book on the publisher's site and the publisher's news release (PDF).

Gay is also the author of Popular Organization & Democracy in Rio de Janeiro: A Tale of Two Favelas and has published numerous articles on Latin American political change.

In 1994, he was awarded an Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language Program Grant to establish a "Foreign Languages Across the Curriculum Program" at Connecticut College by the U.S. Department of Education.

He has also served as chair of the department of sociology, Dean of the College, Associate Dean for Academic Programs and Director of the Center for International Studies and the Liberal Arts (CISLA).
