About my work

I work at De Montfort University in Leicester, UK, where I am Professor of Education and Technology.

At DMU, I am a member of the Steering Committee for the Institute for Research in Criminology, Community, Education and Social Justice, a member of the Centre for Urban Research on Austerity, and a Research Associate in the Centre for Computing and Social Responsibility. I supervise PhD students, and teach on undergraduate modules on evidence-based teaching and learning, research methods, and historical and contemporary issues in education.

I am also an AdvanceHE National Teaching Fellow.

My research interests include:

  • the idea of the University and radical alternatives to it;
  • the place of co-operative practice and mass intellectuality in addressing and moving beyond crises;
  • the University and the Triple Crunch (of socio-environmental crisis, energy availability, and the secular crisis of capitalism);
  • alientation, hopelessness and academic ill-being;
  • technology and critical social theory.

You can view my peer-reviewed publications, conference presentations, and research projects/supervisions.

I can be found on SKYPE/TWITTER/YouTube as hallymk1.

  1. Enjoyed your article on Robinson’s transnationals. Helped clarify some important distinctions he’s making between state and global economies. Am currently teaching a colloquium on War and Peace and will definitely come back to your site for more articles. Keep up the good work. – Peter
