Professor Anthony Elliott is Dean of External Engagement of the University of South Australia.


Professor Elliott is an internationally distinguished social scientist who fosters universities’ public engagement and service to society. A sociologist by training, Professor Elliott received a BA (Hons.) in Political Science from the University of Melbourne. He then won a Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Packer Scholarship to the UK, where he completed a PhD in Social Theory at Cambridge University under the supervision of Lord Anthony Giddens.


Professor Elliott is one of the most influential and widely published social theorists in the world, with over 40 books translated in 15 languages. The New Republic has described his research breakthroughs as “thought-provoking and disturbing”. He has secured competitive research funding from, among other agencies, the Australian Research Council, the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Programme, the Toyota Foundation, the Australia-Japan Foundation, and the Japan Foundation.


He currently serves as a member of the Australian Research Council’s College of Experts. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in the UK, Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, a Fellow of the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust, and a Senior Member of King’s College, Cambridge. He also holds appointments as Super-Global Professor of Sociology (Visiting) at Keio University, Japan, and Visiting Full Professor of Sociology at University College Dublin, Ireland.


He is Executive Director of UniSA's Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence and Network - which spans universities and enterprises in Germany, Denmark, Ireland, Poland, Finland, Estonia, Japan and New Zealand. He is also Research Professor of Sociology in UniSA: Justice and Society. 


Professor Elliott was previously Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) and Head of the Department of Sociology at Flinders University (2006-2012) and Director of the Hawke Research Institute at UniSA (2012-2016). He has held visiting academic positions in the UK, USA, France, Ireland and Japan, and from 2004 to 2006 was Professor of Sociology at the University of Kent at Canterbury, UK.

In recent years, he has turned his scholarly focus to the digital revolution and artificial intelligence. From 2017 to 2019, he served as a member of the Expert Working Group of the Australian Council of Learned Academies (ACOLA) on AI at the request of the Prime Minister’s Commonwealth Science Council, and with support from the Australian Research Council (ARC), the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, and the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science. In 2017, he served as a member of ACOLA’s Artificial Intelligence Scoping Project Committee, Academy of Science and the Academy of Technology and Engineering. He has devoted his time to advising many new and aspiring technology leaders, mentoring students interested in careers in AI, teaching in executive education programs, and writing and speaking on salient topics resulting from the AI revolution – innovations in enterprise, the transformation of universities, the impact of digital technologies on society, and business governance and leadership, among others. His latest books in this area are The Culture of AI (Routledge, 2019) and Making Sense of AI: Our Algorithmic World (Polity, 2021).


Professor Elliott is strongly interested in shared leadership principles and has completed an executive leadership course at the Judge Business School, Cambridge University in 2014.


Professor Elliott contributes to media worldwide: amongst others, he has been recently been interviewed by the BBC World Service, The Sunday Times, ABC Radio National, The Australian, BBC Radio 4, GMTV Sunday as well as European and North American radio and television networks.
