Mr Angus McNelly, BSc (University of Bristol), MSc (SOAS)
Email: email@example.comRoom Number: Arts One, 2.16Office Hours: Thursday 10-11am
I started off studying Economics and Mathematics moving, developing interests in the fields of Critical Political Theory and Latin American Politics through a Master’s in Development Studies at SOAS. My PhD research focuses on class formation and state formation in urban Bolivia, and I spent seventeen months doing fieldwork in 2016/17. I am currently in the writing up phase of my thesis. I have also published articles about developments in Bolivia in Constellations journal, Viewpoint magazine and ROAR magazine.
Outside academia I taught in a secondary school for three years, and tutored foster children for four years, honing my teaching skills and applying pedagogical theory. I have found this invaluable experience that I have been able to transfer into teaching at undergraduate level.
