Areas of expertise The mobilization, transformation, and demobilization of security publics; the relationship between domestic and international factors in processes of state and identity formation in connection with concepts and practices of security; and the sociology and politics of knowledge, especially theories of discourse as encompassing the material and visual. I therefore have broader interests in the roles of culture (‘high’ and ‘low’) and media in producing security. This has led to expertise in the war on terror, Guantananmo, the aftermath of 9/11, technology and justice.
