Professor Mark Neocleous
Professor - Critique of Political Economy

Marie Jahoda 202

Summary

My current role is Professor of the Critique of Political Economy in the Department of Social and Political Sciences, having joined Brunel in 1994 in what was then a Department of Government. I am a critical theorist who focuses on questions of state power and capital, especially as they pertain to police, security and war, a series of powers that can be captured under the  label 'pacification'.

I also have an interest in the political imagination, especially concerning bodies, monstrosity, subjectivity and death.

Broadly speaking, my work straddles the following areas: i) the history of ideas; ii) critical theories of power; iii) the concepts of security, war and police; iv) the logic of pacification; v) Marx and the Marxist tradition, especially Western Marxism; vi) the dead.

More detail is given in the sections on this webpage called 'Research' and 'Selected Publications'. The 'Selected Publications' section lists only my books. Most of my published work is available for free either here:
