Research interests

Kjell Noordzij (1995) is a sociologist who studies the social aspect of representative democracy. His research primarily focuses on how different groups of citizens perceive of politics and their representation in it, and on the role of status and contestation of status beliefs in contemporary political conflicts. Inspired by works from Bourdieu’s Distinction to Erasmus’ In Praise of Folly, much of Kjell’s research aims to learn from others’ perspectives and to uncover the implications of these perspectives for the attitudes and behavior citizens show inside and outside electoral politics. Reflecting his broad range of interests and his interdisciplinary research profile, he has published on status conflicts, political trust, perceptions of cultural distance to politicians, populism, turnout, and political representation.
