Noel Parker

Lektor emeritus

Medlem af:

  • Politisk Teori

  • Since 2003, Associate Professor in Political Theory and the History of Ideas at the University of Copenhagen, and previously Reader in European Politics at the University of Surrey (UK). From 1977 to 1993, he was a member of the academic staff at the British Open University.  He holds a B.A. in Philosophy, an M.A. in the History of Ideas, a Maîtrise de Philosophie, and Ph.D. in Government (from the London School of Economics).

     

    Current research interests centre on the spatial, geopolitical and identity construction of socio-political orders: their borders, boundaries and margins; and empires as non-sovereign-state forms extending over space.  Longer-standing interests have been the meaning and historical evolution of practices of contention such as revolution and terrorism; and the validity and force of survivals from Enlightenment thought.
