Melinda Cooper

by JCE February 3, 2015

Melinda Cooper is Professor  in the Department of Sociology at Australian National University researching the interaction between neoliberal and new conservative practices of government. Her most recent monograph, Family Values (2017) sought to theorize the principle of family responsibility as a lynchpin between neoliberal and new conservative approaches to political life. Her current projects are 1) a political theory of the resurgent far right and its relationship to financial crisis and 2) an inquiry into the neoliberal politics of public finance.
