Andrew Ross is a broadly trained scholar of international relations, international law, and political theory. He holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from The Johns Hopkins University (2005), an M.A. in Philosophy from the University of Warwick, and a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Victoria. Dr. Ross’s research investigates the complex role of emotion in international politics and law. He is currently completing a book manuscript entitled Beyond Hatred: Violence, Identity, and Justice in an Age of Terror. The book addresses familiar cases whose emotional dimensions have been missed by theories trained on identity—ethnic and racial conflicts in Rwanda, Bosnia, and South Africa; terrorist attacks on New York and Madrid; and America’s contested ‘War on Terror.’ It reconceptualizes emotions as fluid and creative social forces, and offers new theories of agency and identity with which to study them. Dr. Ross is starting a new project about the affective legitimation and de-legitimation of international legal standards on human rights and the use of force.
