Lis Kayser holds a Master in Cultural Differences and Transnational Processes from the Department of Cultural and Social Anthropology at the University of Vienna. Lis is enrolled as a PhD student at the Department of Anthropology at Aarhus University (Denmark) and based at the Danish Institute for International Studies, where she works on her PhD-project, provisionally titled “The Nuclear Afterlife in French Polynesia: On Ruination, Nostalgia, and the Future”. Her project explores how life in the Anthropocene – starting with the first nuclear tests in the 1960’s – is like for French Polynesia’s inhabitants and how they perceive radioactive pollution and its environmental, socio-economic, and health risks in the present. The PhD project is part of the larger research program on “Radioactive Ruins: Security in the Age of the Anthropocene (RADIANT)”, based at DIIS, studying the effects of nuclear weapons testing in the Marshall Islands, Kazakhstan and French Polynesia.
