Dr Matthew Eagleton-Pierce is a Senior Lecturer in International Political Economy at SOAS University of London. His research interests cover a number of areas in political economy, particularly ideologies associated with neoliberalism and 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, 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. He has published in International Political Sociology, New Political Economy, and Millennium, among others. His current research is focused on three areas: (1) the political economy of managerialism; (2) time and temporalities in capitalism; and (3) the relationship between expertise and NGOs in the recent history of trade policy struggles. He 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.
