Alexej Ulbricht is a Lecturer in the Department. His work focuses on exclusions within liberalism and how liberal discourses provide conceptual resources for illiberal groups to mobilise. He has explored this in a number of fields, including with regards to immunising tendencies in liberal multiculturalism, and homo-nationalist media narratives. Currently he is working on a project focused on faith-based civil society actors and their mobilisation around reproductive rights.
