Associate Professor of Law, University of Waikato, New Zealand; Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for Legal Research, Bristol UWE, UK
Anna is a legal theorist whose work focuses largely upon questions related to law’s construction of the human being and the human relationship with the world, broadly conceived. Her work calls on insights from a range of disciplines despite being firmly located within a combination of critical legal theory and jurisprudence. She has a particular interest in the themes of legal subjectivity and vulnerability, locating these themes in relation to contemporary globalisation and to a central concern with the implications of the materiality of the living order – including the theme of embodiment. Anna is currently working on a monograph on legal subjectivity, a series of articles and three co-edited collections, including The Research Handbook on Human Rights and the Environment (Edward Elgar Publishing) and Human Rights in the World Community: Issues and Action. She is also series editor of a new series, Law, Justice and Ecology, recently established by Glasshouse, and series co-editor of the Critical Reflections on Human Rights and the Environment series, Edward Elgar Publishing. Anna was nominated for the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law Scholarship Prize 2012. Her CV in brief can be viewed here.
