Sabrina Paillé’s MA thesis focused on the way in which the relationship between Nazism and Modernity has been theorized in sociology. It explored the tensions between approaches that interpret National Socialism as an anti-modern phenomenon and those that interpret it as a product of modernity. It paid a particular attention to the relationship between geopolitical contexts, politics of memory and paradigm shifts in the social sciences.
Her doctoral research focuses on nationalism, right-wing populism and anti-immigration reactions in contemporary Europe.
