George Pavlich
Professor George Pavlich

University of Alberta, Canada | 14 October - 28 October 2019

Nominated by Professor Alan Norrie, Schoolof Law

Professor George Pavlich’s previous work highlights complex and enduring rituals of criminal accusation as the foundations of today’s unequal, individualizing, and vast criminal justice systems. While at the IAS, he aims to develop work on how settler-colonial forms of criminal law emerged through accusatory “theatres of criminalization” in Western Canada (with key roles for the police, Justices of the Peace, Magistrates). In critically addressing the silencing legacies of settler-colonial law as it misappropriated Indigenous legalities, he plans to work with collaborators at Warwick (e.g., Professor Norrie) to better understand the complementarity between the social auspices, and the moral phenomenology, of those who face criminalization.
