Welcome to my blog!
I see myself principally as a sociologist, but my work is often interdisciplinary, especially engaging with media, communication and cultural studies. My current position is SHARP Professor in the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. My undergraduate training was in sociology and anthropology at the Australian National University, and I have a Master of Public Health and a doctorate from the University of Sydney. For over two decades now I have written about the sociocultural dimensions of medicine and public health; risk; the body; and digital media. I have authored 18 books, edited nine others and published over 200 academic journal articles and book chapters on these topics. I am also interested in experimenting with innovative methods for social research.
I can be contacted by email on firstname.lastname@example.org and my Twitter handle is @DALupton.
I am a longstanding and active member of The Australian Sociological Association (TASA).
