Jonathan Bradley is a Master of Letters student with the U.S. Studies Centre at the University of Sydney in Australia. His academic career has been an effort to knit together his twin interests in American politics and American culture, particularly popular culture, and he has written on subjects including the presentation of biracialism in the television series “The Boondocks” and the similarities between the treatment of the everyman in country and hip-hop music.
In 2010, he traveled to the United States on the Marion Macaulay Bequest Scholarship, where he interned with the House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn, and attended the University of Washington as an exchange student. Jonathan is a journalist and blogger, who has been published in the Sydney Morning Herald, the LA Weekly and Stylus Magazine. His undergraduate degree, from the University of Newcastle, was in Communication, majoring in Journalism.
