Professor Lisle’s research in critical International Relations and International Political Sociology explores issues of difference, mobility, security, travel, visuality, governmentality, biopolitics, materiality, technology, borders, practice and power. She examines how cultural and visual expressions of global politics (e.g. museum exhibits; photography; tourist brochures) shed light on central geopolitical tensions such as war, mobility and inequality. She is currently examining how mobile humans, security technologies and geopolitical imaginaries come together at global borders, and how those borders fail.
