Biography

Associate Professor Haydon Manning works within the School of Social and Policy Studies as a member of the discipline of Politics and Public Policy. A frequent commentator on South Australian and national politics; his main research interests focus on political attitudes, voting behaviour,  elections, political parties, and political cartooning. Recent research publications analysed the politics of uranium mining in Australia, environmental issues during the 2010 election campaign and current issues in SA politics. His on going collaborative research on the role of political cartoons frequently feature as the foundation for many presentations to various community organisations interested in current issues in Australian politics. He teaches a large first level class introducing students to Australian politics and government, and more specialist classes in electoral behaviour and environmental politics at upper level. He is co- convenor for both the SA Parliamentary Internship program and the Electoral Research and Regulation Network [SA chapter].
