Sarah Earnshaw received her doctorate in American Studies from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München in 2019, funded by the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung, and is currently working on her first book, “Freedom Will Be Defended”: Human Rights and Sovereign Standards in US Security. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California Berkeley in the History of Forced Migration and Environment, in association with the German Historical Institute Pacific Regional Office and the Zolberg Institute, Sarah joined the research training Group ‘Practicing Place’ in May 2021. Hailing from the Bonnie Banks, previously she obtained an MA in History and Literature and an MLitt in War Studies from the University of Glasgow.

Back in Bavaria, Sarah is developing her new project ‘Knowing Your Place: Placing Class Struggle Across Precarity in US Labour Landscapes’. Embracing a new working-class studies perspective, alongside her work in political theory, her research interests revolve around the placing of labour organising, solidarity, working-class politics, as well as media and technology in activism.
