  • How did you become interested in this area?

    I am interested in the ways in which contemporary popular culture reflects, challenges, or produces knowledge about nuclear weapons politics. Overall, my thesis aims to illustrate how popular culture has a lot to tell us about the production and reception of ideas about nuclear politics, with profound political consequences. Doing so can reveal political discourses that are so widely reproduced that their political (and often problematic) nature may no longer be easily recognisable.  

     

    Why should the public care?

    When popular culture is taken seriously as a site of power in world politics, the boundaries of what “counts” as politics are rewritten. The expansion of these bounds creates room for alternative ideas, identities, and possibilities. Ultimately, this can redefine what knowledge, and whose knowledge, is prioritised in the nuclear realm.
