Biography

I am presently Senior Lecturer in International Relations at Coventry University. Previously, I was a centre associate at the Jean Monnet Centre for Excellence at the Newcastle University as well as a visiting scholar at the Kansai University in Osaka and the Centre for Transatlantic Relations at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, John Hopkins University in Washington. I gained a PhD in Politics from Newcastle University with a study on Hans J. Morgenthau's world-view. In addition, I hold a MA in International Studies from Newcastle University, a M.A. in Politics, Economics, and Intercultural Business Communication from the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, and a Diplome du Programme International from Sciences-Po Paris. My research focuses on International Political Theory and in particular I am working on the connections between classical realism and critical theory. I am also interested in intellectual history, knowledge transfer, and Japanese political thought. More specifically, I have looked in my research into conceptualising the public spehere, power, and aspects of social criticism. I also contributed to the elaboration of the world politics and popular culture nexus. Currently, I am working on projects exploring the concept of unlearning in International Relations and a theorisation of community beyond postcolonialism.

Area of Expertise:

  • International Relations
  • International Relations Theories
  • History and Sociology of Knowledge of International Relations

Vision Statement

With my focus on International Political Theory, particularly the nexus between classical realism and critical theory as well European emigre scholarship, I aim to contribute to a rising discourse in International Relations. Elaborating on their commonalities allows understanding their profound analyses of crises and the importance of their normative aspirationsfor a reconsideration of the human in politics. This not only suggests new understandings of our present-day crises, but it also provides visions and strategies for responses to some of the most pressing problems of twenty-first century world politics.
