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. This work also explores the role of masculinity and emotions in rejecting right-wing populist politics. 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 a founding Co-Editor of the journal Emotions and Society (Bristol University Press) -
His research has been funded by the British Academy & Leverhulme Trust, and the Economic and Social Research Council.

Nathan is the Programme Coordinator for the Bachelor of Sociology and currently teaches the following courses:

Social Problems (SOCI 1004)

Sociological Theory in Action (SOCI 2009)

Qualitative Research Methods in the Social Sciences (SOCI 3014)

Sociological Research Project (SOCI 3017)
