About Marcel

Engelsk beskrivning
Marcel Mangold joined the Swedish Defence University in March 2020 as Assistant Professor in War Studies. Marcel obtained his Ph.D. in political science at Södertörn University College in 2018. During 2019 he held a position as a lecturer in political science at the Department of Political Science at Örebro University. He has also taught political science at Stockholm University. During his Ph.D., he spent two years at the Johns Hopkins University as visiting graduate student with a Fulbright grant.

Marcel’s research at the Swedish Defence University is situated at the nexus of critical military studies, political theory, philosophy and methods related to anthropology and ethnography. Main areas of interest are military thinking, practices, routines and systems that have emerged and are often taken as given within armed forces. By linking theoretical interest in strategies of power/knowledge, affects, aesthetics, materiality, the Anthropocene, and space to topics such as man-machine relations, soldiering, tactics and the becoming war, Marcel’s research is – and is going to be – focused on three areas:

- Theoretical and genealogical studies of military thinking, military practices and technologies to shape man-machine relations and how they perform together.
- Field work that take interest in how things/machines/technology, materiality and place affect and shape personnel and operational routines in domestic militarized spaces. This research focuses on the relational complexes that characterize weapon systems with a focus on every day, military experiences.
- Ways to re-conceptualize central notions, concept and debates in military theory through Anthropocene theory as well as ecology and process-oriented theory.

Marcel has previously conducted genealogical studies on historical formations of power and knowledge to shape and standardize democratic citizen habits in Sweden. He has also researched the spontaneous relations between place (with a focus on materiality, affects, bodily postures and movement in space) and the formation of democratic habitus in urban contexts.
