Research

I study conflict and intervention, with a focus on the politics and ethics of humanitarian interventions and the infrastructures that they use. My current research project concerns a radio early warning network in rural Congo. In studying the politics, history, labor, and routines of the early warning network, I am interested in varying definitions of (in)security, rural connectivity, everyday use of technology, militarism and humanitarianism, ethics of protection, sound, idioms of technology, histories of intervention, politics of community self-defense, and radio technologies.

My previous research project looked at FM radio programs the encouraged rebels to surrender in and around Uganda. I look at message production and reception, humanitarian use of justice and reconciliation narratives, and the militarization of humanitarianism in northern Uganda and northeastern Congo. I am still completing some of this research.
