Sarah Nelson is a Ph.D. candidate in US and international history at Vanderbilt University. She is also pursuing a Joint-Ph.D. in Comparative Media Analysis, an interdisciplinary degree that complements media and communication studies with training in the Digital Humanities. Her research focuses on the history of international governance and decolonization, looking particularly at how telecommunications and media regulation became key domains of anti-colonial contestation between the 1920s and ‘80s. Sarah’s article, “A Dream Deferred: Unesco, American Expertise, and the Eclipse of Radical News Development in the Satellite Age,” will be published this fall in the Radical History Review. In August 2021 Sarah will join Southern Methodist University as a postdoctoral fellow with the Center for Presidential History.
