Robin Rodd

He teaches anthropology at James Cook University. His research interests span citizenship, democracy, drug use, and critical theory. He is particularly interested in making bridges between political theory and anthropology to understand how democracy can dissolve into authoritarianism, and in examining how memory is produced and experienced to create specific possibilities for political action. Rodd is currently exploring different domains of the banality evil, and does fieldwork in Argentina, Uruguay and Venezuela when he gets the chance.
