Personal profile

Biography

Janice started out as a solicitor, litigating on behalf of trade unions, before becoming an academic. This switch reflected a growing interest in legal theory gained while studying for an LLM in Labour Law. She has also been awarded an MA in Continental Philosophy (distinction) and PhD both from the University of Warwick. She joined Monash University in 2011, having taught at the universities of Exeter, Leicester and Staffordshire in the UK.

Janice Richardson specialises in the overlap between feminist and political philosophy, and the law. In particular, she is interested in ontological and psychological conceptions of self and personal identity. She has published three single authored books, two co-edited collections and a wide range of journal articles.
