About Jennifer Nedelsky

Professor Jennifer Nedelsky will be moving to Osgoode in January 2018.

She is currently Professor of Law and Political Science at the University of Toronto and Professorial Fellow at the Institute for Social Justice. Her teaching and scholarship have been concentrated on Feminist Theory, Legal Theory, American Constitutional History and Interpretation, and Comparative Constitutionalism.

Her most recent book, Law’s Relations: A Relational Theory of Self, Autonomy, and Law (2011) won the C.B. Macpherson Prize, awarded by the Canadian Political Science Association. She is currently completing a jointly authored manuscript (with Tom Malleson), A Care Manifesto: (Part) Time for All (forthcoming, Oxford University Press, 2017).

Once the book is done, Professor Nedelsky [BA (Rochester); MA and PhD (Chicago)] will return to her book manuscript, Judgment in Law and Life, building on Hannah Arendt’s unfinished theory of judgment. She will also be developing a larger partnership project on restructuring work and care.
