Alexander Page is currently Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Sydney (2020-Present). He submitted his PhD thesis in sociology, Surviving "Advancement": Aboriginal Community Organisations Negotiating Settler-Colonial Neoliberal Governance in November 2019 at the University of Sydney. His research utilises the sociology of race and racial states, settler-colonialism, critical Indigenous studies and methodologies, and the sociology of practice and agency to explore the complex relationships between Aboriginal community organisations and their relationships with government in Western Sydney from everyday perspectives of frontline workers. Since 2013, he has been employed in tertiary education as both tutor and guest lecturer in sociology and socio-legal studies, receiving the Dean’s Citation for Excellence in Tutorials with Distinction from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences in 2015, the Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (UK) in 2017, and was nominated by his colleagues for the Faculty Teaching Award in 2019. Alex co-convened the Sociology of Indigenous Issues Thematic Group at the national sociological forum The Australian Sociological Association, from 2016-2019.
