Shane Chalmers

 

Shane joined the Melbourne Law School in 2018 as a McKenzie Research Fellow. Before that he was a Teaching Fellow in the Melbourne JD (2017), an Australian Endeavour Research Fellow at the Oñati International Institute for the Sociology of Law (2016), and a doctoral scholar at the Australian National University (2012-2016).

Shane works at the intersection of law and cultural studies, crossing disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, including philosophy, history, literary and visual studies, and sociology. His published research has contributed knowledge of the rule of law, legal pluralism, law and development, property theory, international law and human rights, aesthetic studies of law (literary and visual), and the philosophy of law. Central to all of his research, and teaching, is a concern with imperialism and social justice. Shane has published widely in leading international journals, including Law, Culture and the Humanities, Law and Critique, Law & Social Inquiry, Social & Legal Studies, Humanity, and Law & Literature. He is author of Liberia and the Dialectic of Law: Critical Theory, Pluralism, and the Rule of Law (Routledge, 2018) and co-editor with Sundhya Pahuja of the forthcoming Routledge Handbook of International Law and the Humanities.
