Samantha Clarke

Samantha Clarke is a doctoral candidate in History at McMaster University. Her dissertation examines how the fight against poliomyelitis fit into international and transnational relations between divided Germany, the USA, and the USSR between 1947 and 1965. “Medical relations” is a newer field in international relations, exposing the ways in which politics and ideology permeate supposedly “neutral” areas such as science and healthcare, and looks forward to contributing to this discussion. In her free time, Sam grows too many plants and feeds them to her rabbit.
