Can You Tell us How You Found us and What Your Interests Are.

My research interests are as follows: First, I am interested in contemporary radical political thought, particularly post-Marxism and anti-capitalism/anti-globalisation. My recent work has dealt specifically with the work of Antonio Gramsci, Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe and Michael Hardt and Toni Negri. Second, I am concerned with issues of political participation, specifically though not exclusively in liberal democratic societies, and in particular how active political engagement might be encouraged. I am currently involved in a number of research projects which address this issue. Third, I am interested in the political role of 'the intellectual' in contemporary societies, both in terms of political philosophy, and the relationship with wider movements of social change.

Can you tell us what sort of meetings would interest you.

Those pertaining to political themes

Are you interested in helping by being a speaker, a chairperson or a facilitator of some of our meetings or webinars ?


We have now started to hold House Meetings. Would you be willing to host a house meeting yourself and what topic would you be interested in discussing at such a meeting?


Are there any other ways you could they help us develop the 21st Century Network idea?
