Personal profile


Paul Muldoon is a Senior Lecturer in Political Theory and Global Politics, and undergraduate coordinator for the department of politics.

He specialises in the field of modern political theory, with particular reference to the politics of identity and the politics of time. Paul is currently working on two research projects. The first looks at the turn to reconciliation in post-conflict and postcolonial societies and seeks to interrogate its status as a form of 'politics'. The second is a broader investigation into the way soceites come to terms with their past and the implications this has for the relationship between politics and time.
