HRREC member Tenille E. Brown, a PhD Candidate and Part-time Professor at the Faculty of Law, has been selected as a Visiting Scholar at the University of Kent Law School, in England.
Kent Law School’s Visiting Scholars Scheme offers established and early career academics – both national and international – the chance to spend a period of time during the UK academic year at the law school, undertaking research and participating in the school’s diverse critical research community.
Ms. Brown’s research is in the area of legal geography and property law and she teaches a course in Law and Geography in the Common Law Section, the first of its kind in Canada. In her research, she focuses on developing critical and justice-oriented understandings of law and its functions, utilizing non-traditional methodologies to interrogate how law can apply to areas without a deep awareness of the places it inhabits. Whilst in Kent, Ms. Brown will be housed at the Centre for Critical Thought as she works on the “critical legal geography” aspect of her research. She will also be giving a guest lecture in property law theory whilst in residence.
Congratulations to Ms. Brown!
