Lyndi is assistant professor of sociology at UNC Asheville, where she teaches courses on social movements, human rights, globalization and development, and research methods.  Her previous scholarship has examined framing and mobilization in U.S. state women’s suffrage movements, strategic adaptation among U.S. state women’s jury movements, and the utility of the World Social Forum as a space for transnational women’s activism.  Her current research, a collaborative project with a major funding organization, draws upon literature from the fields of social movements, advocacy evaluation, and development to investigate the influence of different sources and models of funding on the strategic action and outcomes of women’s rights NGOs and SMOs.
