Martin Hägglund (23 November 1976, Stockholm) is a Swedish philosopher, literary theorist, and scholar of modernist literature. He is Professor of Comparative Literature and of Humanities at Yale University. Hägglund specializes in continental philosophy, critical theory, and modernist literature—ranging across French, German, English, and Scandinavian languages. He is the author of four books, which engage with philosophers of time (from Kant to Derrida), theorists of desire (from Augustine to Lacan), modern writers (Proust, Woolf, Nabokov), and the legacy of German idealism (from Hegel to Marx and beyond). He received an MA in comparative literature from SUNY Buffalo (2005) and Cornell University (2007), and a PhD in comparative literature from Cornell University (2011).
