Christopher J. Agee

Adjunct Instructor of Sociology


MA, 2003, The New Schl for Social Rsrch; BA, 1989, CUNY Hunter Coll


Mr. Agee’s research focuses on late capitalism and its impacts on peace and war, exploitation and oppression, global health and climate change. In addition to investigating the historical, socio-economic, and political role of structure and agency, he analyzes the collective action and social justice movements that confront the resulting conditions.

Agee is publisher and co-editor of CovertAction Magazine and is editing the 2018 annual compendium entitled: CovertAction: Persistent U.S. Attacks Against “Democracy and Freedom,” Past and Present.

Among his recent articles and papers, last August 2017, he presented a paper in Montreal, Canada at the annual conference of the American Sociological Association. The paper explored the correlation between high infant mortality rates and inequality in the United States. The idea for this paper grew out of the various courses he teaches at Farmingdale State College and now at Hofstra University including "Global Health Systems," "Health and Society” and the "Sociology of Medicine and Health.”

For past articles, check out the piece he wrote on "May Day" that appeared in the International Encyclopedia of Revolution and Protest: from 1500 to the Present, edited by Immanuel Ness. See also "Bridging the Gap," an article that appeared in the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA) on his father's work as a CIA agent and subsequent whistleblower on the run.
