Richard Stanton teaches political communication and corporate strategy at masters level and public relations at undergraduate level.
His research informs his teaching. His research is underpinned by the triangulation and tensions between journalism, public relations and politics. His present research lies at the junction of the corporate and the political at two levels - local Australian and international. It investigates and analyses the communication disconnect between global energy exploration, government energy policy campaigns and media issue campaigning. It examines specifically advocacy and opposition campaigns around clean energy, mining taxes and coal seam gas exploration.
His other research interest is the 'independent' (ie non-party candidate and elected representative) at local, provincial and national levels of government. As an exercise in participant observer research Richard stood as an independent candidate for election to the NSW Legislative Council in March 2011. His communication campaign forms part of his teaching in Meco 6912 Political Communication. He has created strategic communication campaigns for candidates to all levels of government.
Richard most recent book is Do What They Like, The Media in the Australian Election Campaign 2010.
He is working on a new book on Carbon and Clean Energy futures.
