Wayne Cristaudo

Professor of Political Science

Before coming to Charles Darwin University, Professor Cristaudo taught Politics and then European Studies at the University of Adelaide. He then went to the University of Hong Kong where he was coordinator of European Studies and then the Division Head of West Studies in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures.

Professor Wayne Cristaudo’s area of interests combines the study of the nature of ‘human beings,’ the history and nature of ideas and social and political institutions, as well as how these also impact on the different characters of peoples and nations.  Presently Professor Cristaudo is writing a book on this topic.  The broad scope of Professor Cristaudo’s interests mean that his work has always been interdisciplinary and wide-ranging. His has written on political and social theory and philosophy, metaphysics, literature, love and evil, the Western tradition. His research interests also have led to an interest in the social and political dimension of religion, particularly Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Professor Cristaudo has also supervised a broad array of topics from theses on European Politics to Development and International Politics, to Creative Arts, Literature and Social and Political Philosophy.
