Arts,Design & Architecture
School of Social Sciences

Andrew Metcalfe is a Professor at the School of Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, UNSW.  He was trained in Anthropology, but no longer cares to distinguish Anthropology and Sociology, belonging to both the Australian Sociological Association and the Australian Anthropological Society.

 

Andrew works collaboratively with Professor Ann Game. He has recently done research on the first year student's experience of university, the teacher-student relation, creativity and inspiration, the nature of subjectivity, the time and space of ritual, the logic of charity, hospitality and the gift. Their new book, published by Australian Scholarly Publishing in 2015, is called What is a Social Relation? They have a blog -- www.livinginrelation.com -- where copies of their recent articles are available.

 

Andrew’s first book, For Freedom and Dignity (Allen & Unwin, 1988), won the Jean Martin Prize awarded by the Australian Sociology Association; one of the books he co-wrote with Ann Game, Passionate Sociology (Sage, 1996),  was nominated for the Amalfi Prize in European Sociology, the only Australian book ever nominated. Both books have been listed as major milestones in the history of international sociology since 1800.
