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 disillusionment, and the role of emotions in politics and citizenship. Together with Djordje Stefanovic, he’s recently conducted a pilot study to explore the ways in which university education may undermine support for right-wing populism. He continues to work with archival data from the UK’s Mass Observation Project to explore the emotional dimensions of dutiful forms of citizenship. He is also working on a book with Brain Loader (University of York) which will explore notions of the political self. He is a founding Co-Editor of the journal Emotions and Society (Bristol University Press) and his research has been funded by the British Academy & Leverhulme Trust, and the Economic and Social Research Council.
