About Research


Andrea Sau joined St Mary's University in 2018 and has been designing and delivering various modules within the  department of Politics and International Relationship ever since. 

Andrea teaches introduction to political economy, Introduction to International Relations, Political Ideologies and Security Studies. 



Andrea's research revolves around political and social theory as well as political economy and theories of ideology. His focus has been on the Marxist tradition, in particular the works of Marx and Antonio Gramsci. Andrea's PhD (soon to be published) is a Marxist theory of ideology based on an in-depth reading of their works. Andrea is currently working on further developing the framework proposed in his PhD by engaging in debate with other critical theorists.
