Career Summary

Biography

Despite the difficulties associated with contract and casual academic employment prior to my full time appointment in 2010, I have remained research oriented for a number of years. I worked with Prof. Graham Maddox at UNE and then with Prof. James Walter at Monash before coming to Newcastle. Articles in A journals (both sole and co-authored), book chapters, and refereed conference papers, all demonstrate a high level of commitment to scholarship in Australian political ideas, Australian politics, history of political thought, and sovereignty theory. Current work combines sovereignty research with history of political thought to examine the nature and significance of liberal imperialism across time. Since 2009 I have been responsible for establishing and coordinating our POLI3001 capstone course for the Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Commerce degrees in the Business School, teaching across three campuses and averaging approximately a thousand students per annum. I am also involved in HONS and RHD supervision.
