Sidney Tarrow, Mauro Rostagno Lecturer per il 2017, è uno dei più noti scienziati politici americani. Dopo aver conseguito il PhD presso l’Università della California a Berkeley nel 1965, la sua carriera accademica si è svolta presso l’Università di Yale e successivamente presso la Cornell University dove è attualmente professore emerito di Government e Visiting Professor alla Cornell Law School. Il professor Tarrow ha fornito contributi di grande rilevanza all’analisi dell’azione collettiva e del conflitto, soprattutto in prospettiva comparata, sia sul piano teorico che su quello metodologico. Insieme a Charles Tilly e Doug McAdam, Sidney Tarrow ha elaborato a partire dalla metà degli anni ’90 la prospettiva della contentious politics, che mira ad integrare filoni di ricerca spesso non comunicanti, incentrati su diverse forme del conflitto politico, dai movimenti sociali al nazionalismo, dalle rivoluzioni ai conflitti comunitari a base religiosa o etnica. Tra i suoi lavori: Democrazia e disordine (Laterza 1990), Power in Movement (Cambridge UP, 1994-2011), Dynamics of Contention (Cambridge UP 2001, con C Tilly e D McAdam), La politica del conflitto (Bruno Mondadori 2007, con C Tilly).
