Mie is a joint PhD candidate in Political Theory and Religious Studies. She holds a B.A. from Tufts University and an M.A. from the University of Toronto. Her research interests include democratic theory, social movements, Black political theory, American political theory, history of political thought, theories of political action, and religion and politics.
Her dissertation, Antinomies of Organizing, reconstructs theories of political organizing from the praxis of organizers in the twentieth-century U.S. labor and civil rights movements. It traces the relationship between democratization and subjective transformation in the American organizing tradition and argues that this tradition holds important insights into the modes and ends of democratic participation.
