Biographical details

Dr Ken Macnab has recently retired from the Department of History, University of Sydney, where for 36 years he taught courses ranging from broad Modern European history, through Imperialism, Nationalism and Racism and English Class and Culture to the histories of Crime and Punishment, Deviance and Violence. He is particularly interested in the history of warfare and peacemaking, and interpersonal conflict (such as duelling). He also concentrates on the nature and history of terrorism, and the implications of the post-September 11 ‘War on Terrorism'.

Ken created the Centre's only undergraduate Peace and Conflict Studies unit, 'History and Politics of War and Peace', which examines the history of the causes of war and the processes and outcomes of peacemaking. He also teaches the 'Cultures of Violence' unit and guest lectures various other units, including 'Religion, War and Peace'.
