N.A.J. Taylor is among those inaugurating the Nuclear Humanities. His work is characterised by an Antipodean stance, which necessitates rejecting human-centredness and employing local means to global ends. He has published two books, Athens Dialogue (EPLO, 2013) and Reimagining Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Routledge, 2017), as well as three special issues, “Re-imagining Hiroshima” (Critical Military Studies, 2015), “Internal Relations” (Borderlands, 2018) and “Reimagining Monte Bello, Emu, and Maralinga” (Unlikely: Journal for Creative Arts, 2018). In development under advanced contract are two more books, Worlding International Relations for the Nuclear Anthropocene (Routledge, c.2019) and Antipodean Nuclear Cultures (Palgrave Macmillan, c.2020), for which he is represented by Media Arts Lawyers.
Taylor currently teaches in Australian Indigenous Studies at The University of Melbourne, and commences a professorship at the Central European University in August 2018. He has previously held honorary and visiting appointments at Bard College, Whitman College, Linköping University, La Trobe University, Roskilde University, and The New School, where he was an Australia Awards fellow. He sits on several advisory and editorial boards, including the Consequences of Radiation Exposure Museum and the Archive of Nuclear Harm, which he directs. He also tweets.
