Desmond Manderson

Desmond’s research is in interdisciplinary work in the area of law and the humanities. This has involved in studying representation and critiques of law in the humanities, including in music, literature, and philosophy.  Most recently he has been studying representations of law in the visual arts, particularly with a view to bringing a stronger use of art historical and art theoretical disciplines in this analysis.  His most recent publications include Law and the Visual: Representations, Technologies, and Critique, published by University of Toronto Press in 2018;  and Danse Macabre: Temporalities of Law in the Visual Arts, to be published by Cambridge University Press this July.
