At undergraduate level, Linda teaches Regionalism in World Politics: The Case of ASEAN, and co-teaches Governing the World, a module examining the role of international law and organizations in contemporary international politics. At postgraduate level, she teaches The International Relations of Southeast Asia and The Politics of International Law. She has also taught Research Methods and Design at Master's level.
Linda's regional focus is Southeast Asia; and her theoretical leaning is towards the (confusingly labelled) 'English School' approach to International Relations. Much of her work seeks to bring these twin interests together.
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has been a major theme, but other research topics have included Indonesia's role within Southeast Asia and beyond; subnational conflict and civil society; and consensus-building in the context of civilian protection.
Her current projects include the following:
1. Indonesia and the world: exploring some of the representations of international relations that can be found in Indonesian popular culture;
2. The social world of international societies: analysing the relationships that variously connect subglobal international societies with their peers, with other multilateral and minilateral endeavours, and with issue-specific trans-regional flows;
3. Peace education and new interpretations of "world society": reconceptualizing peace education as a "nodal point" between the world of states and the world of individuals and/or as a pathway that enables unorganized individuals to locate and pursue areas of opportunity.
