S.A.P. 16 Chamsy el-Ojeili

My latest Socialist Academic Profile looks at Dr Chamsy el-Ojeili, a lecturer in sociology at Victoria University, Wellington.

El-Ojeili is the Sociology Department's postgraduate coordinator.

His research specialties include;

Classical and contemporary sociological theory; political sociology; the sociology of development and globalisation; cultural studies.

His current research focuses on;

Post-Marxism and intellectuals; the work of Cornelius Castoriadis and Jacques Camatte; globalisation and politics.

El-Ojeili is the author of several riveting works including;

2005 "Critical Theories of Globalization."

2003 "From Left Communism to Post-Modernism: Reconsidering Emancipatory Discourse."

El-Ojeili is co- editor of the New Zealand Sociology Journal and is a contributing editor to the Alliance Party/Global Peace and Justice Auckland linked journal, Red and Green.

Do I hear Cameron feverishly typing up his transfer papers for a move from Auckland to Vic?

No you don't. We have socialist sociologists up here too. Are there any socialist historians teaching in Aotearoa? I wish there was an NZ equivalent of Howard Zinn. Maybe it should be something I strive to be in the future. :)

Just strive to be good historian Cameron.

Do that and you'll inevitably become a capitalist anyway.
