Iver B. Neumann – University of Copenhagen

Iver B. Neumann

Iver B. Neumann is Montague Burton Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Iver's research on Russia led him to study the social production of identity, the study of interacting identities led him to diplomacy, as well as to how identities are reproduced for large-scale audiences in popular culture. His first foray into the study of images was a 2001 article in Millenium on presentations of diplomacy in Star Trek. He is also the co-editor, with Nicolas J. Kiersay, of Battlestar Galactica and International Relations (Routledge, 2013). Iver also holds a second doctorate in social anthropology. His contribution to the project will be a study of visuals in diplomacy, with the emphasis being on paintings, brochures and photographs as means of communicating diplomatic work to home audiences.
