Personal profile


Originally from the UK, I have a BA in Media and Communications from Goldsmiths College,  an MA in Migration and Diaspora Studies from SOAS, and a PhD in Sociology. I have lectured and taught in Anthropology and Sociology at UWA, and in Asian Studies at Murdoch University. I currently lecture  at the McCusker Centre for Citizenship (UWA), educating students about social need, social justice, and civic participation. I also coordinate all McCusker Centre academic units (SVLG1002 McCusker Centre for Citizenship Internship, SVLG1006 Making a Difference: Civic participation and Social Change, SVLG3008 Wicked Problems). I have presented at conferences in Australia, Denmark, UK and Canada and have published in several academic journals. My most recent paper on immigrant otherness and ethno-nationalism was published in Ethnic and Racial Studies and was awarded the ISA RC05 Best HDR/ECR paper award. I have also contributed to research on the Australian national curriculum and national identity, and I am currently researching the intersections between teamwork, critical consciousness and social responsibility.  I am a co-convenor of the Sociology out West group. My interests centre on the construction of race (both racial Others and whiteness), immigration, press, critical discourse analysis and national identity.
