Personal profile


Constance Duncombe is Lecturer in International Relations at Monash University, Australia.  She received her PhD in International Relations at the University of Queensland, and has worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at UQ, and in the School of Political Science and International Studies on an ARC project that examines how images shape responses to humanitarian crises.



Research interests

Her research interests lie within critical and interdisciplinary engagements with contemporary world politics. Constance is particularly interested in the challenges associated with conceptualizing the political power of recognition and respect as it relates to interstate engagement and foreign policy. Additional research interests include Middle East politics and culture, and the politics of new media.
