Sabine Selchow is Fellow in the Civil Society and Human Security Research Unit, Department of International Development at the London School of Economics (LSE). In the ‘Security in Transition’-project, Sabine directs the ‘Culture/s’-research component.
Sabine brings an academic background to the study of security that stretches across disciplinary boundaries and brings together the Humanities and the Social Sciences. She studied North American Studies and Communication Studies at Freie Universitaet Berlin (Germany) and Duke University (USA), and holds a PhD in Government from LSE. She has a particular interest in the nature and political impact of collectively shared and culturally specific notions, such as notions of ‘the global’, ‘the new’, ‘the unknown’, ‘uncertainty’ and ‘risks’, and how they play out in ‘security’-discourses, in particular in the United States.
Sabine is member of LSE’s Global Civil Society research programme and is involved in various initiatives and international working groups, such as the working group ‘Cosmopolitan Communities of Risk’, established by Professor Ulrich Beck at the Center for Advanced Studies in Munich, Germany. From 2013 to 2016, Sabine was also a Research Fellow in Ulrich Beck’s ERC-funded project ‘Methodological Cosmopolitanism’ at Ludwig-Maximillians-Universität München. Since 2012, she is Visiting Faculty at Ecole des Affaires Internationales at Sciences Po in Paris, France. In 2013/14 she held a Fernand Braudel-Fellowship at Collège d’études mondiales, Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme in Paris.
