Dr. Vysotsky’s research has focused on the conflict between supremacist groups in contemporary American society and their militant anti-fascist opposition through ethnographic and interview research with anti-fascist activists in order to understand the relationship between threat, space, subculture, and social movement activism. His current research is focused on understanding the processes of desistance from racist skinhead subculture as well as the intersections of white supremacist and "men's rights" language and framing.
