Robert L. Oprisko is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of International Studies at Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana.
His research examines the relationship of the individual to group in order to show the social tensions that develop into political relationships. He emphasizes both the actors and the levels of analysis with exceptional rigor using advanced qualitative tools including agonic doubting, aspectival totalization, and Bentley’s Methodology. His works on honor, dignity, authenticity, and rebellion examine the mechanics of status quo maintenance (continuity) and revision (change).
He has also taught at Stanford University, Mount Holoyoke College, Purdue University, Indiana State University, and for Johns Hopkins University.
