Career Summary

Biography

S. A. Hamed Hosseini, PhD in "Sociology and Global Studies" from the Australian National University (ANU), is a Senior Lecturer and Faculty Associated Researcher at The University of Newcastle, Australia. He has conducted qualitative research on Global Justice Movements, Capitalism and its Alternatives, Transversalism, and the Political Identity of young Muslims in Australia. As an expert in advanced quantitative research, he has developed and measured new Composite Indicators in sociology such as "Critical Open-mindedness" and "Social Well-living" (as an alternative concept to "well-being"). 

Since 2003, he has been teaching at the Australian National University, University of Technology Sydney, University of New South Wales, and the University of Newcastle.

He has supervised PhD and Honors projects on the Subjective Well-being of Academic Staff in Australia, General Well-being of Single Parents in Kuwait, Anonymity in International Cyber-Activist Networks, The socioeconomic roots of Arab Spring in Egypt, etc. 

His recent book, Alternative Globalizations (Routledge, 2010), establishes a new integrative approach to studying ideologies, identities, and solidarity in recent oppositions to capitalist globalization. The book contributes to social sciences by introducing new concepts such as "Accommodative Consciousness", "Interactive Solidarity", "Dissident knowledge", "Social Nexuses of inequality", "Ideological Visions", and"Transversal Cosmopolitanism". 

He has won research grants including the 2010 Bilateral Grant from the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, and played role as Chief Investigator in a project fully funded by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship: "Job Readiness of Muslim Job-seekers in the Relative Effectiveness of Employment Support Services in Australia," in partnership with UON's Centre of Full Employment and Equity.

He has also published articles and presented conference papers on Alternatives to Capitalism (2016-2017), Critical Open-mindedness (2015-2016), Occupy Wall Street Movement & the Political Economy of Global Financial Crisis (2013), Language and the Social Marginalization of Non-English Speaking Migrants (2013-2014), Arab Spring (forthcoming), Sociology of Ideas (2012), Youth Political Identity (2013), Activist Knowledge (2010), Global Justice (2009), Sociology of Dissident Knowledge (2007), Alter-globalization Solidarity (2006), Sociology of Collective Cognition (2003), Rural and Regional Development (1999, 2000), Islamic Conservatism and Noe-Conservatism (2000), Islamist Progressive Political Thoughts (2000), and the Applicability of Social Theories in the Context of Islamic Societies (1999).

Dr. Hosseini's research experience, his integrative theoretical approach, and his Middle Eastern background play a significance role in research projects concerned with ethnicity, social disparities and marginalization. He is familiar with many Islamic-cultural terms and ideas (Hosseini 1998, 2000a, 2000b). He has been in contact with many Muslim immigrants, intellectuals, communities, and student organizations in Sydney and Newcastle. While his cultural-experiential background enhance the cultural sensitivity, his sociological background is important in current context of rising extremism, new racist/populist right wing politics, bigotry, and Islamophobia. His works speak to policy analysts, politicians, activists, and social researchers.

Research Expertise

As a political and economic sociologist, Hosseini's main field of research is shaped around the social impacts of capitalist globalization (on health, education, environment, democracy, and social inequalities) as well as the recent progressive responses to global crises (i.e. the post-capitalist alternative praxes). Hosseini's studies particularly focus on the relationships between ideas, identities, social practices, and their changing socioeconomic structures including the new technological advancements.

His recent work contributes to the investigation of "transversal identities" among young Muslims in Western diaspora, "meta-ideologies" like "cosmopolitanism" and "transversalism" in the global justice movement, as well as "alternatives to capital and capitalist development". • Alternative Futures (Economic Democracy, Solidarity / Participatory Economy, Eco-Socialism, De-growth, Democratic Money, etc.) • Social movements including youth movements (with focus on the movements in the Middle East) • Inter-sectional inequalities and Transversalist politics • Global crises (food, fuel and finance) and their impacts on local lives • Youth Political Identity • Cosmopolitanism, Transversalism, Open-mindedness • Globalization, Globalism, and Alter-globalization • Muslim Minorities • Eco-sufficiency, Eco-centrist and Sustainable Development in the Global South • Socioeconomic Statues, Marginalization, Identity, and Social Capital among Immigrant Communities (with stress on younger generations);

Dr Hosseini's social research is based on a diverse range of mixed and innovative methods including: Advanced Social Statistical Data Analysis, Mixed-Method Analyses, Critical Discourse Analysis, Meta-Analysis and Meta-ethnography, Action Resarch, Designing Survey Questionnaires, Designing Multidimensional Attitude Measurement Scales, Structural Equation Modelling, and Network Analysis.

Teaching Expertise

Since his appointment in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Dr Hosseini has established 4 new courses and fully coordinated six courses (SOCA6100, SOCA6120, SOCA6670, SOCA3902, SOCA2400, SOCA4090 and SOCA4100) and supervised three research students at the postgraduate level. His SOCA2400 (Globalization, Social Justice and Development) has attracted a significant number of students from a broad range of disciplines and programs including geography, development studies, education, social sciences, arts, etc. Based on this sustainable positive teaching experience, he has been able to consolidate his teaching, research and course development skills. This level of productivity has been built upon his 3 years of tertiary teaching at Go8 universities (including one year fix term Level B lectureship) prior to his appointment at the UoN. Throughout his teaching, he has actively sought mentoring and incorporated suggestions from peer curriculum experts. So too, he has constantly consulted teaching and learning materials, monographs, his own research findings, and academic journal articles for developing and implementing best-practice models and positive student learning outcome. (See Dr Hosseini's CV for more details)

2013 Deliberating Alternatives to Capital: A Critical Cosmopolitanist Approach
Organisation: University of Technology, Sydney Description: 20 Nov. 2013 Seminar Series presented at Cosmopolitan Civil Societies Research Centre (paper is coauthored with Barry Gills, University of Helsinki) This paper outlines the principles of a new theoretical approach to studying ‘transformative ideological visions’ and “regenerative social counter-currents” that may significantly influence debate and practice around constructing new radical and democratic alternatives to existing systems of domination and hierarchy embedded in capitalist social relations. When dealing with transformative ideas and practices, a critical account of cosmopolitanism can be employed in two ways: (1) as a critical analytical framework, that helps us examine alternative ideologies to the social relations of capital, in terms of their capacity to create historical “moments and conditions” for other alternatives to flourish; and (2) as a normative framework, that can facilitate an accommodative relationship between rival transformative practices and political agendas.

2013 “Many Post-modern Princes? Rival cosmopolitanisms in the global field of justice movements”
Organisation: Department of Political and Economic Studies Description: PhD/research seminar programme autumn 2013, 5 Sept. 2013. Coordinated by Prof Heikki Patomaki In this seminar presentation, Hosseini reflects on the recent organizational and ideational shifts in the so-called global justice movements. While some recent studies conceptualize these movements as ideologically mature and coherent, other inquiries highlight growing disorganization, fragmentations, disappointments and disputes. The former argue that underlying global solidarities are coherent cosmopolitanist or globalist values, whereas the latter claim that the global justice movements lack the necessary ideological vision for uniting the masses behind a global project for changing the world capitalist system. Alternatively, by drawing on his research project (2002-2006) and examples from the post-GFC uprisings including the Occupy movements in 2012, Hosseini argues that there have been four major parallel trends of ideological transformation, dividing the global of field of resistance between rival camps in terms of their orientations towards cosmopolitanist values. There are however significant potentials for traversing the divisions between the cosmopolitanist camps.

SOCA2400 Globalisation, Social Justice, and Development
University of Newcastle - Faculty of Education and Arts
This course concentrates on the ways in which social change happens at the global level and explores how different societies are influenced and challenged by such changes. It provides students with key insights into the economic, political, and social implications of globalization for social justice and development. The course considers the impacts of globalization at the local, national, and international scale. Topics and methods are drawn from the disciplines of sociology, economics, politics, and geography. It helps students to analyze the consequences of major globalization processes (such as the trans-nationalization of policies, ideas, ideologies, and population movements) for human development and the role of powerful agents like international organizations and states underlying these processes. Students will also explore the root causes of new global risks and crises (such as global inequality, global poverty, global financial crises, conflicts, and the violation of human rights, democratic deficit, and environmental degradation) and work towards the proposition of alternatives and solutions based on a new notion of global social justice.

The experience of job market disadvantage is not a novel phenomenon for some in contemporary Australia, even in the face of embedded equal employment opportunity (EEO) ideals. This article addresses the phenomenon of persistent job market disadvantage for some minority groups by presenting new data from a major multi-method study on labor market obstacles for Muslims seeking jobs in Australia. Responses from jobseekers and employment service providers are analyzed together to consider how EEO principles are experienced by Muslims who engage with employment services and move in and out of the labor force. The article proposes that key EEO tenets-freedom from discrimination and support to overcome disadvantage-are not represented at present in many Muslim jobseeker experiences. Furthermore, these same EEO principles appear to be somewhat compromised in employment service provision to Muslim jobseekers and, by extension, to other disadvantaged minority jobseekers. We offer some suggestions as to how the spirit of EEO legislation might be better reflected in support of Muslim jobseekers. It is concluded that an all government approach may be needed to counter the deep mistrust of Muslims in Australian society. © 2013 Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs.

Critical Openness: A New Synthetic Social Index 2015

The aims of this project are as follows:

  1. (Re-)introduce ‘critical open-mindedness’ as a new sociological concept, which can be employed particularly in the studies of social attitudes, social values, identities, and racial and perceptual discrimination.
  2. Develop a relevant Synthetic Social Index comprising five composite social sub-indicators/dimensions for the purpose of both primary and secondary quantitative data analyses.
  3. By processing the secondary data produced through the World Values Surveys in Australia in 2005 and 2012, the application of the ‘Critical Open-mindedness Index’ (COI) is examined and the findings are discussed.

  4. Development of a Likert Scale to measure COI.

  5. Develop an index of Cognitive Open-mindedness based on a number of social-psychological indicators drawn from the same data sets.
  6. Propose an integrative approach that aims to flexibly draw on the advantages of existing methods. The decisions on how to integrate methods of composition are pragmatically made, depending on the nature of data, the validity of the end results and the objectives of the study.
  7. Propose a new method of penalization in this process based on the ‘variation/deviation from the maximum’ across the sub-indicators.
  8. Examine the external validity of the results based on the regression of the COI on sensibly predicting factors in order to validate the CIs and thereby choose the most suitable method of integration.
