DEPUTY DIRECTOR: Associate Professor Bob Pokrant PhD (Cambridge)



Apart from two years at the John Curtin International Institute (JCII) when it reported through a management committee to a governing board, SARU has come under the management of the School of Social Sciences, the Department of Social Sciences or the Humanities Research Centre.


Affiliation with SARU is as follows: seven staff from the Department of Social Sciences and one from the Department of Media and Information, both of which come under the jurisdiction of the Faculty of Media, Society and Culture within the Division; three from other divisions; and four from other universities. There are as well seven doctorial students affiliated to SARU. As all have teaching commitments, none work full time on research.
