Please join the Critical Global Politics Researcher Cluster for a seminar with Debbie Lisle (Queen’s University Belfast) 'Making Safe: the dirty history of a bomb disposal robot'.
Debbie's research engages with a number of contemporary debates in International Relations, International Political Sociology and beyond, most notably around issues of difference, mobility, security, travel, visuality, governmentality, biopolitics, materiality, technology, practice and power. Her earlier work explores the relevance of cultural and visual artifacts (e.g. contemporary travel writing, museum exhibits, photographs, art, war films) to world politics, and argues that the cultural realm tells as much about International Relations as the official documents usually privileged in this context. Debbie's more recent work focuses on the following areas: Tourism, Militarism, Everyday Life; Borders, Technology, Security; War, Representation, Surveillance.
