Biography

Professor Andrew Hope is Dean of the School of Arts at Federation University Australia. Dr Hope is a sociologist with an international research profile in two main areas: young people’s risky online activities and the use of school surveillance technologies. More recently, these interests have grown into a focus on social justice issues relating to youth, pre-crime and problematic antiterrorism strategies.

Andrew joined Federation University in October 2018. Previously, he worked at the University of Adelaide undertaking various management roles as well as establishing numerous new programs including the Bachelor of Criminology and the Bachelor of Sociology. Prior to emigrating from the UK, he also taught in the Departments of Sociology at Manchester Metropolitan and Sunderland Universities as well as the Schools of Education at Huddersfield and Durham Universities.
