Thèmes de recherche

Professor Brett Neilson’s research and writing aims to provide alternative ways of conceiving globalisation, with particular emphasis upon its social and cultural dimensions. Drawing on cultural and social theory as well as on empirical and archival information, this research has derived original and provocative means for rethinking the significance of globalisation for a wide range of contemporary problems and predicaments, including the circulation of popular culture, the proliferation of borders, the ascendancy of global financial markets, the pressures of population ageing and the growing heterogeneity of labour. His writings have been translated into ten languages : Italian, French, German, Swedish, Finnish, Greek, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

He is currently working on the ARC Discovery project, Culture in Transition : Creative Labour and Social Mobilities in the Asian Century (opens in new window)Opens in a new window, with partner researchers from China, India and Italy.
