James Ingram is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at McMaster University. His primary research interests are in modern, especially contemporary, continental political theory, from Kant and Rousseau, and across Marx to Critical Theory, deconstruction, and post-Marxism. His publications include: “Praktische Idee oder vernünftiger Glaube? Aporien moralisch-politischen Fortschritts und kommende Demokratie” (Tr. Markus Wolf), in Politische Philosophie und Dekonstruktion. Beiträge zur politischen Theorie im Anschluss an Jacques Derrida, Eds. Andreas Niederberger and Markus Wolf (Berlin: Transcript, 2007); and “‘Aufklärung’ – Ist es links?,” Polar: Politik/Theorie/Alltag #3 (Fall 2007). Dr. Ingram’s current research extends this work by exploring particular areas of especially transnational politics, including human rights, culture, democracy, and representation. Notably, as well, he has also worked extensively as a translator from French (Jacques Derrida, Étienne Balibar, Jacques Rancière) as well as from German (Axel Honneth, Reinhart Koselleck, Hauke Brunkhorst).
