Career Summary

Biography

Dr Rob Imre has an interdisciplinary background in a number of academic fields. Connecting his research is a concern with the manner in which people interact with their governments. This includes studies and research in to diverse areas such as terrorist movements, comparative education systems, the use of social media by governments both in election campaigns and in policy controversies. He also has a focus on contemporary regime change and the ways in which governments decline and shift, and the ways in which active protests facilitate that change. His past research includes work on right-wing radicalism in Central Europe, and de-radicalisation initiatives in Malaysia. He has been an invited speaker at the ANU, the University of Szeged, Ruhr University in Bochum, and the University of Regensburg. He has just completed a pilot project measuring the response rates of political representatives via social media tools in 14 different countries. Dr Imre completed his Bachelor's (Honours) Political Studies at Queen's University in Canada, a Master's in Political Science at the University of Victoria, in Canada, and his PhD at the University of Queensland.

In 2014 Dr Imre will be on a Faculty Exchange [with Professor Stephan Bierling] to the University of Regensburg. Dr Imre will also be a visiting research fellow at the Institut für Ost- und Südosteuropaforschung in Regensburg.

In 2015 Dr Imre will be a Visiting Fellow to the Space and Political Agency Research Group (SPARG) at the School of Management in the University of Tampere [ http://www.uta.fi/jkk/en/research/themes/sparg/researchers.html ].

© Springer Science+Business Media Singapore 2016.Educational settings for children have a role in (re)producing their societies¿ political cultures and to dynamically shape children¿s subjectivities, including their political understandings, feelings, and orientations. In this chapter, a particular preschool in rural Australia is understood as a political space that (re)produces those relations that are part of the democratic society in which it is situated. Through the multiple ¿stories¿ told on the renovation of the preschool bathroom, the authors trace the political culture of the preschool by payingspecial attention to the politics of space. ¿Stories¿ were generated through interviews with various stakeholders after the refurbished bathroom was opened. The analysis illustrates the interview participants¿ struggle over authority and the agendas and power relations they invest through the discursive constitution of the bathroom space. These struggles are indicative of the preschool¿s and the broader political culture in which it is located. The preschool¿s political culture ultimately led to the exclusion of many ideas oung children put forward and considered important in regard to their bathroom. To conclude considerations are made about the ways in which these power relations condition the possibility of including children¿s views and their participation and the importance of spatial politics for young children¿s political learning.

In this paper we argue that the socialist kindergarten in Hungary (1948-1989) was set up to aid the modernizing of a nation in a particular way and in a historical and political context in which the only way forward was to leave behind aspects of the past and start a new chapter in Hungarian history. Comparing this project to the "cosmopolitan" project discussed by Thomas Popkewitz, we argue that kindergarten education was more similar to education in the fictionalized West than previously thought. By reading socialist kindergarten education, curriculum, and pedagogy as part of the broader "cosmopolitan project", we show how particular civic/civil habits, behaviour, and morals were formed to produce modern citizens, often in contradistinction to stated socialist ideology. We also explore regional versions of cosmopolitanism that are attached to the developing nation-state and the creation and violent negotiations of what it means to be Hungarian, against the background of the region's rich cultural and ethnic diversity. © 2012 UNESCO IBE.

In this article the authors explore the ways in which social media and social network sites (SNSs) are mediating the new urban environment. Many analyses of these technologies highlight the ways in which they are predicated on surveillance techniques and how the self is increasingly entwined within them. The authors examine the processes of surveillance, and the surveillant assemblage, and how the self interacts with these technologies to produce an authentic self in mediated urban spaces. They argue that SNS technologies privilege a version of the contemporary self, limiting choice to 'pro-sumer' activity, and a mandatory self-surveillance. Instead of constructing an open public sphere, these technologies operate to build a 'second city' of commodified urban space in which the recording of banal activities in an everyday setting is the authentic lived experience of people using this technology. © The Author(s) 2013.
