Dr. MacLeod has long believed that a considered understanding of the process of politics is essential for improving social justice and striving for the public good. The strength of the academic discipline of political science is its ability to consider political thought and action from a variety of perspectives,
for, at its core, it is an inter-disciplinary field.
MacLeod’s research interests capture this inter-disciplinary approach through published articles
in the fields of health policy, English literature and Canadian politics. His most recent work concentrates
on examining the connection between visual art and politics. Journals in which his work is published include:
The Canadian Journal of Political Science, Myth lore (Tolkien studies), Healthcare Papers and the Canadian Parliamentary Review.
