Race, Gender and Culture Research Cluster
Race and gender are at the core of research in the School of Law. The Race, Gender and Culture Research Cluster's early work was focused on the ways in which legal doctrine constructs subjects as sexed, gendered and racialised. More recently, the cluster has focused on the ways in which legal institutions (police, prisons, detention services, courts etc.) form subjects as sexed, racialised, gendered and how these formations result to inequalities and a failure of justice.
The Cluster is actively engaged in research on:
- family, kinship and sexuality
- the sexuality of the judiciary
- queer theory and prisons
- law and the body
- gender formation and violence
- race and property
- race and migration.
