Stuart's teaching interests link to both his academic specialisms in the field of the sociology and politics of sport, and my professional experiences in physical education. He currently teaches across a range of modules on the Sport, Coaching and Physical Education degree programme, with his main teaching and module leadership responsiblities focused on our modules linked to the field of the sociology of sport.

Stuart's research interests revolve around the sociology and politics of sport, with a particular interest in the study of national identity, nationalism and sport; the politics of sport and sporting events; the politics of the Commonwealth Games; the sociology and politics of Scottish sport; and, sport and the Scottish diaspora.

Stuart also acts as the Postgraduate Research Tutor for the Department of Sport, Health Sciences and Social Work, with responsibilities for postgraduate research student matters within the Department.
