Research Projects

My own long term project is to write on Cities, Civitas and Civilizations: From Anti-Urbanism to Hyper-Urbanism in an epoch of Global urbanization. In my work as Director of the Philippines-Australia Studies Centre I am promoting two projects: 1. a public sector linkage project (involving environmental scientists, social scientists, miners, and Indigenous communities) on land restoration projects after mining that promote sustainable development; and 2. an inter-disciplinary visual arts-exchange project between La Trobe and Ateneo de Manila University.

In my work as Deputy Director of Thesis Eleven Centre I am looking at ways to replicate our work in the Philippines in India and in collaboration with all five centres affiliated with us (Yale, Leeds, Copenhagen, Johannesburg, Delhi and Manila).

With Peter Beilharz,  I am working on ways to think of Australia as antipodes (one project on history of Australian social sciences and another on developing new approaches to doing sociology in Australia in teaching and research) and to encourage cultural sociology of popular culture such as music and sport that combines critical traditions of the sociology of power with performative appreciation of creativity in everyday life.
