Event description

Description

Dr Jatinder Mann (Hong Kong Baptist University) - This edited collection explores citizenship in a transnational perspective, with a focus on Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. It adopts a multi-disciplinary approach and offers historical, legal, political, and sociological perspectives. The two overarching themes of the book are ethnicity and Indigeneity. The contributions in the collection come from widely respected international scholars who approach the subject of citizenship from a range of perspectives: some arguing for a post-citizenship world, others questioning the very concept itself, or its application to Indigenous nations.

Jatinder Mann is an Assistant Professor in History at the Hong Kong Baptist University. He is working on a project on ‘The end of the British World and the redefinition of citizenship in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, 1950s-1970s’ and is the sole editor of Citizenship in Transnational Perspective: Australia, Canada, and New Zealand (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2017). He is also the author of The Search for a New National Identity: The Rise of Multiculturalism in Canada and Australia, 1890s-1970s (New York: Peter Lang Publishing, 2016). Jatinder has published numerous articles in front-ranking, interdisciplinary journals. He is also contracted as a co-editor in the production of Documents on Australian Foreign Policy on War and Peace, 1914-1919, which will be published in 2018.

Jatinder was awarded the prestigious Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Alberta in 2014. He has also held visiting fellowships and professorships at King’s College London, the Australian National University, Carleton University, and the Victoria University of Wellington. Jatinder was a recipient of an Endeavour International Postgraduate Research Scholarship by the Australian government and an International Postgraduate Award by the University of Sydney for his doctoral research.

Citizenship in Transnational Perspective - Australia, Canada, and New Zealand (2017) is published by Palgrave Macmillan
