rnPostdoc-Fellow James Gledhill takes a post at the University of Hongkong
Once more a postdoc-fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities looking for international access and finding it: from August on, the british political philosopher James Gledhill will be the new member of the University of Hongkong’s Department of Politics and Public Administration.
rnrnIn his work, Gledhill thinks about the relationship between political theory and changing social practices. His dissertation, entitled »Political Theory and Social Practices: G.A. Cohen, Rawls, Habermas and the Problem of Self-grounding«, was his first step towards theoretical work in this field. During his time at the Institute of Advanced Studies and as a member of the DFG-Research Group »Justitia Amplificata«, he continued his work launching his second project: »Political Autonomy in Practice: Constructing and Reconstructing Social Practices«, on which he will continue working as an Assistant Professor at the HKU. His teaching responsibilities will include courses on Capitalism, Social Justice and Democracy and its Critics.
