Dr. Jared Holley is Marie Curie Fellow in Political Theory in the Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) and Research Fellow in Humanities, Social, and Political Sciences at Sidney Sussex College.
He works in the areas of political theory and the history of political thought. He is interested in modern ideas of about freedom and domination and their intellectual histories, and in how these histories and ideas inform contemporary practices of resistance. His current research addresses practices and ideas of 'anticolonial solidarity' from roughly the Berlin Africa Conference to the formation of the World Council of Indigenous Peoples (c. 1885-1974). His work at Sidney will focus on the activism and writings of Anténor Firmin, José Martí, and W.E.B. Du Bois.
