Panel update, and a new paper

Amidst finishing up marking, moving house, and preparing for next week's OCIS Conference in Brisbane, I have some time spare to share some news:

1. The panel proposal that I wrote about in a previous post ('The international political economy of Islamophobia') has been accepted as part of the program for the Australian Political Studies Association conference at UNSW on September 26-28 2016. Very excited and humbled to have the opportunity to present alongside some brilliant scholars - Dr. Noah Bassil (Macquarie), Amira Aftab (Macquarie), and Dr. Yassir Morsi (RMIT).

2. I presented a paper at the annual Department of Modern History, Politics and International Relations HDR (Higher Degree Research) conference last Friday, June 24. In short, it's a concise-ish summation of my overall research program, and of the arguments I'm making in my thesis. You can read/download it here.

More (possibly including an overseas research trip) to come.
