Bruno Leipold is a political theorist and historian of political thought and received his PhD from the University of Oxford. He then held a postdoctoral fellowship in political theory at the Justitia Amplificata Centre for Advanced Studies at the Goethe University Frankfurt and the Free University Berlin.

His research interests include the work of Karl Marx, theories of popular democracy, the republican political tradition and nineteenth-century social and political thought. During his Max Weber Fellowship, Bruno aims to publish a number of articles on these topics, focusing particularly on the democratic potential of the imperative mandate and Marx’s relationship to republicanism. He will also develop the latter into a book manuscript, provisionally titled: ‘Citizen Marx: Republicanism, Communism and Capitalism’.

Bruno’s teaching experience at Oxford included giving undergraduate tutorials in both the core political theory course and the Marx and Marxism course. He has also taught masters students during a research stay at the Humboldt University of Berlin.
