I've been working for the Open University since 2003. I'm currently a lecturer in politics, staff tutor and deputy chair of the new level 1 social science module 'D113 Global Challenges- social science in action' . As its name suggests, the module engages with three big global challenges - looking at how social science helps us understand and respond to the climate crisis, the legacies of colonialism and enslavement, and the challenges posed by digital technology. I have also contributed a chapter on addressing global challenges.
On the level 3 Politics module 'DD316 Modern Political Ideas' I led a block on democracy and the state including a video on 'Democracy in Catalonia, Spain' with Georgina Blakeley. On ‘DD211- Understanding politics: ideas and institutions in the modern world’ I was responsible for the block ‘Political concepts’, co-authoring four chapters on freedom, equality, power and sovereignty and producing several audios and videos focusing on these themes.
