Lucas Dolan conducts research at the juncture of international relations and contentious politics. In his dissertation, this takes the form of exploring the role of transnational social networks in the spread, mobilization, and success of radical right-wing populist movements in Europe and the United States. Dolan is also interested in social theory, philosophy of science, relational methodologies, and their applications to the study of international relations and contentious politics. Lucas studied Germany as a Kathryn Davis Fellow for Peace at the Middlebury College Summer Language Schools and received training in social network analysis at the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR). He is actively involved in transatlantic scholarly dialogue through the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS).
