Associate Professor

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 been teaching as a visiting professor at the University of Lucerne for almost ten years. Hans-Martin’s research interests are in international political theory and sociology, global governance and international organizations, and postfoundational political and international thought. He has published on these subjects in International Theory, European Journal of International RelationsInternational Political Sociology, Review of International Studies, Journal of International Relations and Development, and Zeitschrift für Internationale Beziehungen. Hans-Martin is currently working on a book project on concepts of world order (nomos, governmentality, pluriversality) as “postfoundational” theoretical responses to the seeming ubiquity of global crisis (from liberal international order to the recent global pandemic).
