Nathan joined The University of Adelaide in July 2018. Prior to this he worked as a Lecturer in the Department of Sociology at the University of York, UK and as Research Fellow at the University of Bradford, UK.
Nathan has research interests which largely fit within political sociology, with a focus on young citizens, political dissatisfaction and disengagement and the role of emotions in politics and citizenship. He is currently working on a book with Brain Loader (University of York) which will explore notions of the political self. He also continues to pursue work based on the Mass Observation Project which explores the emotional dimensions of dutiful forms of citizenship.
His most recent research project was undertaken with Brian Loader and Amanda Mason-Jones (University of York), and was based in Hartlepool, UK. The project used participatory research methods and involved young people working with artists, academics and the local council to help shape local policy around issues of mental health.
