Dr Darius von Guttner Academic, History

Darius's research and teaching concentrated on cultural aspects of religious warfare, crusading, military orders and identity. In the recent years his interests shifted towards global history as the result of being involved in interdisciplinary research and teaching subjects which examine history from a global perspective. He is particularly interested in the common patterns which emerged across all cultures, in aspects of world history which have drawn people together and the examinations of these patterns which reveal the diversity of the human experience. Darius has a strong research interest in education. In addition to the interest in curriculum (design and development, and policy implementation and evaluation), he researches the nexus between research orientated teaching and learning and the disparity between the methodology of teaching of a discipline like History at secondary and tertiary levels. After two decades of teaching outside metropolitan centers he is working collaboratively on the issues affecting education in regional settings, specifically on regional culturally, linguistically and economically diverse (CLED) communities of learning and the use of emerging technologies and the issues affecting funding for humanities.
