Discipline of Politics & International Studies
Staff in Politics and International Studies at the University of Adelaide have a particularly broad conception of what constitutes Politics. Our research and teaching ranges from a focus on government, elections and parliament to an analysis of power relations, such as gendered or racial ones, in the media, culture, social relations and everyday life. We pride ourselves on producing excellent empirical political science and traditional political theory as well as cutting edge social theory and media analysis. Our research and teaching is based on strong Australian Politics, International Studies, Political Theory and Comparative Politics components.
