Denise Ferreira Da Silva

Director of Centre for Ethics & Politics

School of Business and Management, Queen Mary, University of London

Denise Ferreira da Silva's areas of interest include political theory, feminist theory, globalization, law & human rights, Latin American & Caribbean Studies, and cultural studies. She intends to develop the following research agenda: (a) the formulation of a notion of Global Justice, which acknowledges and addresses the effects of present and past conditions of political (economic, juridic, and symbolic) subjugation; (b) the tracing and unweaving of the various layers and threads of the global matrix, which is a concept that describes the present global conditions of existence, and (c) the tracking and expanding of liberatory political moves and statements that may guide the delineation of a project of Global Justice that does not merely re-inscribe the limiting modern ontoepistemological premises.

She is the author of Toward a Global Idea of Race and co-editor of Law and the Postcolonial: Ethics, Politics, Economics.
