BMVP Campbell Craig

Campbell Craig is Professor of International Politics at Aberystwyth University. He has previously taught at the University of Southampton, Yale University, and the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. He writes and teaches about the systemic effects of the nuclear revolution upon political practice and thought, the history of US foreign policy and of the Cold War more generally, and supranational concepts of government. He has held senior fellowships at the European University Institute in Florence, the Norwegian Nobel Institute, and Yale University, has given invited lectures at many other universities, including Princeton, Harvard, Cambridge, the Free University of Berlin, Roma Tre, and Sciences Po-Paris, and has published pieces in The New York Times and the London Review of Books. He is the author or co-author of four books and many articles and chapters, including (with Fredrik Logevall) America's Cold War: the Politics of Insecurity (Harvard University Press, 2009) and (with Jan Ruzicka) of 'The Nonproliferation Complex,' published in Ethics and International Affairs (Fall 2013). He is currently working on a book-length history of the ‘nonproliferation complex,’ an article on Marxism and the nuclear revolution, and is developing a larger project on the ‘Nuclear Revolution as Theory.’

Professor Craig will be giving a talk about ‘The Politics of the Nuclear Revolution' - a Heuristic Analysis’ for the Global Insecurities Centre Seminar Series on Wednesday 11 March 2015.
