Biography

Professor Anthony Elliott is Dean of External Engagement at the University of South Australia, where he also holds the posts of Director of the Hawke EU Centre and Research Professor of Sociology.

Anthony Elliott was born in Australia and holds a BA Honours degree from the University of Melbourne and a PhD from Cambridge University, where he was supervised by Lord Anthony Giddens, architect of Third Way progressive politics. Professor Elliott was formerly Director of the Hawke Research Institute at UniSA (2012-2016), and Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) and Head of the Department of Sociology at Flinders University (2006-2012). Professor Elliott holds various international research fellowships and professorships, and is currently Visiting Global Professor of Sociology in the Graduate School of Human Relations, Keio University, Japan and Visiting Professor of Sociology at University College Dublin, Ireland.

In 2014, Elliott was Visiting Fellow at the Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin. In 2015, he was Visiting Professor at the Universite Pantheon Assas, Paris II.

In 2016, Professor Elliott was awarded an Australian Research Council Major Grant for research on robotics, artificial intelligence and the future of employment. This project is conducted with colleagues at the Institute for Social Futures, Lancaster University; the Australian National University and Wollongong University.

Professor Elliott contributes to media worldwide: among others, he has recently been interviewed by the BBC World Service, The Sunday Times, ABC Radio National, The Australian, BBC Radio 4, GMTV Sunday, as well as European and North American radio and television networks.

Writing and Criticism on the work of Anthony Elliott:

Leading journals have devoted sections to the critique of Professor Elliott's research.  See, for example, Human Relations: "Psychoanalysis and Postmodernism", 54(6), 778-97; Sociology: "Towards a Sociology of (Public) Mourning?", vol. 35, no. 1, 205-212.  The Journal of the Universities Association for Psychoanalytic Studies (winter, 1999, vol. 2, no. 2) dedicated a special section to Professor Elliott's research.  See also History of the Human Sciences: 'Slouching Towards Babel', vol. 13, no. 2, 2000.  

The prestigious US journal American Imago (Vol. 59, No 2, 2002: 114), in an editorial, described Elliott's research as "the state of the art of scholarship". Similarly, the internationally renowned journal in critical theory, Thesis Eleven, noted: "Anthony Elliott is quickly emerging as a one-person industry, intent in all his writings to demonstrate both the relevance and the importance of psychoanalytic theory for critical social analysis". Renowned social theorist, Charles Lemert, states that "No one writing today has the range and depth of Elliott's understanding of self-theory". Additionally, Lockley (2013) describes Elliott and Urry's Mobile Lives as a "...unique and current contribution to the field of new media and sociology".

Elliott's work has also been favourably reviewed, amongst others, in Times Literary Supplement, New York Times, The British Journal of Sociology, Psychoanalytic Studies,  Psychoanalysis, Culture and Society, British Medical Journal, The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Sociology, Biography, Thesis Eleven, Choice, Radical Philosophy, The Australian Journal of Political Science, Free Associations, Sociological Review and Critical Sociology.
