Dr. Jacob Kripp is a Visiting Assistant Professor at Trinity College. He comes to Trinity from Johns Hopkins University, where he received his PhD in Political Science and was also a Postdoctoral Fellow. He views the classroom as space of ongoing dialogue. Here students take an increasingly active role in their own learning with the aim of thinking critically (and creatively) about themselves in relation to global politics.

He is currently working on two book length manuscripts. The first, entitled Race War, Racial Segregation, and Global Peace, unravels how and why racial segregation came to be imagined as the key to global racial peace in white world order from 1898 to 1935. The second book project, entitled The Martial University, explores the reciprocal and mutually co-constitutive relations between imperial warfare and knowledge production in the early Cold War. It focuses on the Operations Research Office, a civilian research team within Johns Hopkins University that was contracted to the U.S. Army from 1948 to 1961.
