hello. i am a political sociologist with trans-disciplinary expertise on (world) political violence, political aesthetics, political design, and social critique.
Jonathan Luke Austin is Assistant Professor of International Relations at the University of Copenhagen. Austin’s research agenda is currently orientated around four main axes: 1) the ontology and microsociology of political violence, 2) the relationships between technology, design theory and world politics, 3) the political status of aesthetics, and 4) the contemporary state of scientific critique. Alongside these foci, Austin possesses a decade of research and field experience in the Middle East (Syria, Lebanon, Iraq) and regularly consults for NGOs and the media on current events.
