Research

Research Interests:

My research focuses on the mobilization of affects in politics of security and the withdrawal of citizenship. I draw on historical cases as the basis for evaluating possible consequences of intensified withdrawal practices for regimes of citizenship today. My project combines archival research with working affect across the social sciences and art practices.
