About Dr S A Hosseini

Dr. S. A. Hosseini is a Lecturer and a Faculty Associated Researcher at The Research Institute for Social Inclusion and Wellbeing (RISIW), and Humanities Research Institute (HRI), The University of Newcastle, Australia. He completed his PhD in Sociology and Global Studies (2006) at the Australian National University (ANU). He has conducted research on transnational social movements, global social change, globalist ideologies, Islamism, and transnational identities. Since 2003, he has been teaching at the Australian National University, University of Technology Sydney, University of New South Wales, and the University of Newcastle.
His new book, Alternative Globalizations (2010), establishes a new theory of the (trans)formation of ideas, identities, and solidarities in recent oppositions to capitalist globalization and its ideological foundations. The book contributes to social sciences by introducing new concepts such as "accommodative consciousness", "Interactive solidarities", "Dissident knowledge", "Social Nexuses of inequality", "Ideological Visions", "Transversal Cosmopolitanism". It provides researchers in the areas of social movement and social ideation studies with a new integrative approach which accommodates many unnecessary theoretical disputes.
