Ann Genovese

 

Ann Genovese is an Associate Professor at the Melbourne Law School. As an Australian historian, and a jurisprudent, she researches: the relationship between Law and History as disciplines and practices; the nature of legal archives and the responsibilities of custodians and writers towards them; and the sources, forms and techniques necessary to show how Australian people have lived with their law.

She has explored these interrelated concerns across multiple sites and projects, and her work has been integral to the establishment of an emergent field - contemporary histories of Australian jurisprudence.

Ann has collaborated with leading scholars from law, history, feminist theory and Indigenous studies, as well as with members of the judiciary and profession. She has been the successful recipient of ARC funding on several projects, most recently The Court as Archive (with Kim Rubenstein at ANU and Trish Luker at UTS).

Ann's publications include: Rights and Redemption (UNSWP, 2008), (with Ann Curthoys and Alex Reilly), Sovereignty: Frontiers of Possibility (with Julie Evans, Patrick Wolfe, and Alexander Reilly) (UHP, 2013), and Australian Critical Decisions: Remembering the Koowarta and Tasmanian Dams cases.

Ann is Director of the Australian Legal Histories research programme, Institute for International law and the Humanities (IILAH). She is also Director, with Shaun McVeigh and Peter Rush, of the Lives Lived With Law project, MLS. She is a member of the editorial board of Australian Feminist Law Journal. She is an Adjunct Professor at the UTS Faculty of Law.
