Professor of Culture and Society, Western Sydney University

Brett Neilson's research and writing aims to provide alternative ways of conceiving globalisation, with particular emphasis upon its cultural and social dimensions. Drawing on cultural and social theory as well as on empirical and archival information, this research has derived original and provocative means for rethinking the significance of globalisation for a wide range of contemporary problems and predicaments, including the proliferation of borders, the ascendancy of global financial markets, the logistical organization of society and the pressures of population ageing. His writings have been translated into fourteen languages: Italian, French, German, Spanish, Swedish, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Turkish, Arabic, Polish, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
