Research

My general research interests lies within the ideas, culture and politics of the nuclear 20th century. Starting in September 2019 I am researching a transnational history of knowledge investigating how anti-nuclear disarmament activists create and circulate knowledge. The focus is on what I call witness activists that protest nuclear weapons testing in the Pacific. The research ties into multiple fields of research, including history of knowledge, history of movements, nuclear humanities and witness studies.
