Visiting Research Fellow, University of Leeds

Before becoming a visiting research fellow at the University of Leeds's School of Politics and International Studies, I taught first and second year modules (as a teaching assistant) in political theory, IR theory, and on globalisation the same place. Before that, I wrote my PhD 'Planetary Ideologies' in political theory/ideology studies. I am currently in the process of turning that PhD into a series of journal articles (one which is currently revised and resubmitted to Journal of Political Ideologies another at an advanced stage of preparation addresses a similar theme to the text I am submitting here - with a much more complex vocabulary so there is no substantial overlap). In addition I am engaged in work for the 'Taskforce on Planetary Justice' for the Earth System Governance network. My chief interests besides run of the mill analytic political theory and the history of political thought are the ideational and conceptual basis for different kinds of world order, here including cosmopolitanism, ecologism, neoliberalism/globalism, and nationalism. I am also very interested in political thinkers not usually considered part of the political theory canon, such as H. G. Wells, Walter Lippmann, and Carl Sagan, just to give a short selection.
