About Nick J. Sciullo

I am primarily concerned with oppression, where it may be found and how it may be critiqued and understood. This takes my research in many directions as I am concerned with how supposed groups, be they racial, ethnic, gender, or class -oriented are treated differently in the law. My work is informed by critical theory, particularly continental philosophy, critical race theory, and rhetorical theory. I desire to expose oppression and its manifestation by applying these schema across the law.
