Hans-Martin Jaeger is Associate Professor of Political Science. He studied at the University of Konstanz, the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Grenoble, Rutgers and Columbia University. Prior to joining Carleton he taught at the University of Central Florida. He has also taught as a visiting professor at the University of Lucerne. Hans-Martin’s research interests are in international political theory and sociology, global governance and international organization, international public spheres and global civil society, and critical international relations theory. He has published articles on these subjects in International Theory, European Journal of International Relations, International Political Sociology, Review of International Studies, Journal of International Relations and Development, and Zeitschrift für Internationale Beziehungen. Hans-Martin’s current research investigates how “new master concepts” in International Relations theory such as nomos, world society, or governmentality reflect on the political and post-political, and the global and provincial in international relations.
