About Prof. DAVID Roman

My research is largely interdisciplinary, spanning political sociology, political psychology, and law & society. I am a specialist in transitional justice but I also study collective memory, corruption, forgiveness and revenge. I am an author of Lustration and Transitional Justice, which was published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 2011 and which received the Concept Analysis Award by the International Political Science Association in 2012. I am a recipient of grants from the British Academy, United States Institute of Peace, and the South African National Research Foundation. Before coming to Lingnan, I held positions at various universities, including Newcastle (reader), Yale (post-doc), CityU (research), BaptistU (visiting), Wits (post-doc), Oxford (visiting), and Masaryk (lecturer). My language abilities and football skills are deteriorating but my children are gradually making up for this.
