Reader In Communications Media & Cultural Studies

Marie Jahoda 154


I worked at Lancaster University from 1994 in the Department of Politics and International Relations, and moved to Brunel in August 2005. My primary research interests have been in social and political theory and political economy as a way of understanding social processes such as: globalisation and social change, developments in global communication, political culture and the modern world-system, democracy and social conflict and anarchist social theory. I am currently involved in a number of projects relating to the concept of 'virtual solidarity' with regard to the role of revolutionary unions in the modern world-system and issues raised by corporate propaganda.
