Thomas Mougey

PhD Candidate, Department of History

Maastricht University

Thomas Mougey is a PhD candidate and a tutor at the department of History at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences since September 2012. His project investigates early UNESCO attempts in scientific cooperation with the Global South. It explores their limited success by reconstructing the underlying and competing views of science and international relations in a world of emergent decolonization. This project combines insights from Science and Technology for Development studies (STD) with approaches from the history of science and recent work in international history and colonial studies. He is supervised by Prof. Wiebe Bijker (promoter) and Dr. Geert Somsen (1st supervisor).
