Callum Ingram


Callum Ingram is an assistant professor in the Political Science Department at the University of Nevada, Reno. His research and teaching focus on the ethics of social and revolutionary movements, democratic theory, American political thought and environmental politics.

Ingram has published work in contemporary pragmatism and philosophy and social criticism and he is currently working on a book manuscript entitled "Dissent in a World of Structural Oppression." The book analyzes how the discourse of structural oppression shifts diagnoses of group-based injustice, as well as how these diagnoses reshape the ethics of dissent in liberal democracies.

His work has been funded by the Clay Endowment for the Humanities, the University of Virginia and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Foundation, among others.
