N.A.J. Taylor is among those inaugurating a new, nuclear, humanities. His work is characterised by an Antipodean stance, which necessitates rejecting human chauvinism, and employing local means to global ends. Recent books and volumes include, Athens Dialogue (EPLO, 2013), “Re-imagining Hiroshima” (Critical Military Studies, 2015), Reimagining Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Routledge, 2017), and “Reimagining Monte Bello, Emu, and Maralinga” (Unlikely: Journal for Creative Arts, 2018). In development are four more books, Worlding International Relations for the Nuclear Anthropocene (Routledge, c.2019), Antipodean Nuclear Feminisms (Palgrave Macmillan, c.2020), Reimagining Chernobyl (c.2020), and Richard Routley’s Antipodean Nuclear Philosophy (c.2019).
Taylor currently teaches Australian Environmental Philosophy at The University of Melbourne. He is an honorary associate in the Environmental Humanities Collaboratory at Linköping University, and commences a professorship at the Central European University in August 2018. He sits on several advisory and editorial boards, including the Consequences of Radiation Exposure Museum, Pace University’s Centre for the Arts, Society & Ecology, and the Archive of Nuclear Harm, which he directs. He also tweets.
