Citation: Robert D. Snow Framing processes and social movements: An overview and assessment. Robert Benford and David Snow were two of the four authors on the paper Frame alignment processes, micromobilization, and movement participation , the original paper in the sociological literature on framing processes in social movements. The two authors revisit the literature that their own work had spawned 14 years later in this literature review which, itself, has become an influential and highly cited work. Collective action frames had become, in the period since their original article was published, a key theoretical means of understanding social movements alongside resource mobilization e. Frames build on Goffman's work on frames and, in the decade after they were offered, became something like a half or two thirds of the social movement literature.

This paper attempts to further theoretical and empirical understanding of adherent and constituent mobilization by proposing and analyzing frame alignment as a conceptual bridge linking social psychological and resource mobilization views on movement participation. Extension of Goffinan's frame analytic perspective provides the conceptualltheoretical framework; field research on two religious movements, the peace movement, and several neighborhood movements provide the primary empirical base.

Four frame alignment processes are identified and elaborated: frame bridging, frame amplification, frame extension, and frame transformation. The basic underlying premise is that frame alignment, of one variety or another, is a necessary condition for participation, whatever its nature or intensity, and that it is typically an interactional and ongoing accomplishment. The paper concludes with an elaboration of several sets of theoretical and research implications. References 69 Citations Cite.

But local activists often say: "I did it because nobody else would. Resource mobilization theorists have nearly abandoned social-psychological analysis of social movements. In this paper a fresh case is made for social psychology. New insights in psychology are combined with resource mobilization theory in an attempt to overcome the weaknesses of traditional social-psychological approaches to social movements. Expectancy-value theory is applied to movement participation and mobilization.

It is assumed that the willingness to participate in a social movement is a Despite their obvious importance to the analysis of movements, little attention has been given them and we seek to remedy this neglect.

So viewed, movement locals exhibit six basic patterns of construction and modal membership. These are listed and the simplest of The Sociology of Conversion.

This essay reviews recent research on religious conversion, particularly within the context of "new" religious movements. It addresses three fundamental issues pertinent to the study of conversion: first, the conceptualization and nature of conversion; second, the analytic status of converts' accounts; and third, the causes of conversion.

The chapter concludes with a proposed agenda for subsequent research on conversion and related topics. The origins of the civil rights movement: Black communities organizing for change.
