Current projects

Liam’s research is currently organised into three continuing projects. As research associate and with Professor Catherine Driscoll he is developing an international history of media classification systems, as technologies for managing relations between minors and culture. This project involves partner investigators working in relation to our central contexts of investigation: India, Japan, the U.S., the U.K., Brazil, China, and Australia. With Dr Timothy Laurie (UTS), Liam is researching higher degree research supervision practices, taking cultural studies approaches to ethics, pedagogy, policy, measurement, and subjectivity, and currently filming supervision meetings. Liam is also continuing to develop his doctoral research on the cultural and legislative regulation of sex offenders. This project concerns the expansion of preventive detention regimes across Australian jurisdictions, with a current focus on the paperless arrests system in the N.T.
