Overview

OverviewText1

  • Rose is the recipient of an Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA) from the Australian Research Council. She began work on her DECRA project, entitled 'International Law and the Legacies of Fascist Internationalism', in January 2016 at Melbourne Law School, following on from her McKenzie Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the same institution. She joined MLS in June 2013 after two years as Assistant Professor of International Law at the American University in Cairo. Rose received her doctorate in 2011 from the School of Oriental & African Studies (SOAS) Law School, University of London, and will be recommencing her position as a Lecturer in Law at Kent Law School in 2019.

    In terms of substance, the broad theme connecting the various strands of her work concerns the relationship between individual and collective conceptions of self-determining subjectivity – that is, the co-constitution of the legal personality of the individual in the domestic legal order and the legal personality of the collective (usually, but not always, the state) in the global legal order. In terms of methodology, she is particularly interested in the role of law in constructing social reality, and in the critical potential of bringing history to bear on law and vice versa.
