Academic backgroundI grew up in Brussels, but I have lived in the UK almost continuously since 1997. I joined Canterbury's University of Kent to study economics (BA), then international relations and European studies (MA), and eventually politics and religion (PhD). I have been a Higher Education teacher since January 2005, first at the University of Kent, then also at Canterbury Christ Church University. In September 2010, I joined Loughborough University as a Lecturer in Politics and International Relations (initially Politics and History). I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy since July 2011. For more on my teaching experience, click here. For a website (called Socratic Hive) describing some of my modules and on which some of my best sudents' essays are published, click here. For my university profile (including contact details), click here. My work can also be followed on Academia.edu (here), ResearchGate (here), ORCID (here), and Google Scholar (here).
My research interests include:
- religious (especially Christian) anarchism and pacifism;
- Leo Tolstoy's political thought;
- anarchist and anarcho-pacifist theory;
- religion and politics (national and international);
- political violence and non-violence;
- more generally: political and ethical theory, international political thought, and political theology.
