Dr Veronika Poniscjakova
I am a Senior Teaching Fellow for the Portsmouth Military Education team based at Royal Air Force (RAF) Halton.
I joined the team in May 2019, and I taught at RAF College Cranwell for year a half before starting my current position in Halton.
I previously taught at the University of Nottingham as a graduate teaching assistant at the University of Nottingham I taught modules such as “the War in Iraq” and “Political Theory: From Ancient to Modern”.
My doctoral research extended a theoretical framework developed by Pedahzur and Perliger on counter-culture. The aim of this PhD project was to understand how living in counter-culture influences communities; to find out these communities’ characteristics and their attitudes towards political developments and their responses towards crises of political and religious nature.
My research interests include:
- civil disobedience;
- political violence;
- politics and international relations of the Middle East;
- Arab-Israeli conflict;
- right-wing political ideology.
I am willing to take PhD students, and I am happy to receive informal enquiries relating to research in any of the above indicated areas.
I am teaching on five courses currently offered at RAF Halton.
I am happy to take calls and emails from the media on my research, and am aware of the needs to respond to journalists in a timely manner. Please contact me directly on email@example.com.
