Current Work

I’m currently based in Brisbane, Australia, writing up my PhD thesis for submission in early 2018 and teaching undergraduate sociology at Griffith University. Earlier this year I spent six months working at Goldsmiths, University of London, thanks to an Endeavour Fellowship. In my current research I look at public sociology, arts-based research (particularly fiction writing), Spinoza, and the individualising framework of neoliberalism. I’m interested in how fiction writing as public sociology can help us better realise what C Wright Mills called the promise of sociology, and make the idea of society more culturally meaningful.

As well as finishing my thesis, I’m working towards publishing my sociological novel and some articles on Spinozan public sociology and fiction writing as a social research method.

I recently launched the second edition of So Fi, a sociological fiction zine which I created as part of my Endeavour Fellowship earlier in 2017. You can read this online here. I’ll be seeking submissions for the third edition of So Fi early next year.
