It is with great sadness that we report the untimely death of Dr Ros Hague in November 2017.

As a senior lecturer in Politics, Ros was a valued and respected member of the Politics and International Relations Department here at NTU. She will be remembered for her passion for teaching and supporting students, her commitment to developing feminist ideas and environmentalism, as well as her humour and compassion. She will be greatly missed by her students, colleagues and friends at NTU.

Please direct any queries relating to Ros’s teaching or research interests to Rose Gann, Head of Politics and International Relations.

Career overview

Ros came to NTU in August 2013. Prior to that she was a Lecturer at the University of Nottingham (2012-2013) and a Teaching Fellow (2008-2012).

Research areas

Dr Hague's research covers two main areas: gender and the environment. Her book: Autonomy and Identity: The Politics of Who We Are (Routledge 2011) looked at the political theory behind the concepts of autonomy and identity in order to develop a new, feminist, understanding which sees autonomy as a process by which we change and develop our identity. The book featured illustrative examples drawn from a wide range of contemporary issues including pornography, domestic violence and citizenship and it drew on thinkers from the canon of political thought.

Ros worked on projects related to contemporary feminism and has expanded some of the themes developed in her book, namely the role of the imagination and attitudes to nature. This informs her second main area of research, an examination of the attitudes to nature found in people who live and work with nature and also in fictional representations of nature. In connection with this, she was working on connections between the work of Mary Wollstonecraft and the idea of green republicanism.

External activity

Ros is a member of the Political Studies Association.
