Dr Matthew Eagleton-Pierce is a Senior Lecturer in International Political Economy. His research interests cover a number of areas in political economy, but are mainly focused on (1) the history and contemporary forms of neoliberalism, and (2) the political economy of global trade. Matt also has strong interests in the conceptual analysis of power and the application of the thought of Pierre Bourdieu to world politics. His first monograph, titled Symbolic Power in the World Trade Organization, was published by Oxford University Press in 2013. He is also the author of Neoliberalism: The Key Concepts (Routledge, 2016), which seeks to critique the common vocabulary associated with neoliberal notions and policies. His current research is focused on two areas: (1) the political economy of managerialism; and (2) the relationship between expertise and civil society groups in the recent history of trade policy struggles. Matt previously taught at the University of Oxford, the London School of Economics, and the University of Exeter. He is a Member of the Senior Common Room at St Antony's College, Oxford. He holds a DPhil in International Relations, also from St Antony's College, Oxford.
