RESEARCH INTERESTS

My overarching research interest is in how polities relate to one another, in pre-history, in history, in imagined worlds, and in principle. I usually draw on Continental social theory to analyse this, and use empirical examples from Russian foreign policy, Norwegian foreign policy and, increasingly, from archaeology.
