Charmaine Chua (US) is Assistant Professor of Politics at Oberlin College, Ohio. She teaches courses on international security, warfare, imperialism, and global political economy. She focuses on the politics of global circulation: how things move, who moves them, and why systems that are supposed to provision life actually distribute inequality and death. Her research has shown that abstract theories of globalisation must reckon with the complex, material processes that structure our political and economic lives. She is also a member of the Empire Logistics Collective and the Abolition Collective.
