About

I am Professor of Humanities at the College of Arts, Society and Education.

With a PhD in History from the University of Cambridge (2004), my main background is in political thought and intellectual history. Over the years my interests have branched out from studying European texts and topics to more multi-disciplinary approaches to global changes and their local manifestations. I am looking forward to developing research as well as teaching that places social, cultural, economic and political change in North Queensland from the eighteenth century onwards in wider perspectives on regional (Indo-Pacific), tropical and global development.

In general, my teaching and research focus on the history of politics, global aspects of political economy and trade, as well as their legal, cultural and institutional dynamics. More specifically, I am interested in institutions of trade, such as free ports and commercial treaties, the history of the idea of the state and the history of international organisations.

I am available for supervision on a broad array of topics across history and with links to politics and the social sciences. Feel free to contact me!

Until 2022 I was an Associate Professor of the History of Political Theory at the School of Social and Behavioural Sciences at Erasmus University Rotterdam. Alongside my position in Rotterdam I have, most recently, been an Academy of Finland Fellow at Helsinki University, where I created a Centre for Intellectual History, a Visiting Professor at Ca’ Foscari Venice, Visiting Professor at Macquarie University and Research Fellow at the Kathleen Fitzpatrick ARC Laureate Research Program in International History at the University of Sydney.
