N.A.J. Taylor lives and works on Wurundjeri land, in Australia. From there, he contributes to the Nuclear Humanities, and collaborates on alternative pathways to nuclear-free worlds. His work is characterised by an Antipodean stance, which necessitates rejecting human chauvinism, and employing local means to global ends. Recent works include the edited volumes, “Re-imagining Hiroshima” (Critical Military Studies, 2015), and Reimagining Hiroshima and Nagasaki: Nuclear Humanities in the post-Cold War (Routledge, 2017). Forthcoming works under contract include the book, Antipodean Nuclear Feminisms (Palgrave Macmillan, c.2018), and the special issue, “Montebello, Emu, Maralinga: Australia’s Nuclear Culture” (Unlikely: Journal for Creative Arts, c.2017), for which he is represented by Media Arts Lawyers.
Taylor currently teaches at The University of Melbourne, and will take up a professorship at the Central European University in 2018. He has variously held visiting and honorary appointments at Linköping University, Roskilde University, Bard College, La Trobe University, Whitman College, 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, Pace University’s Centre for the Arts, Society & Ecology, and The Archive of Nuclear Harm, which he directs. He also tweets.
