Senior Lecturer, The University of Newcastle (Autralia)

Dr Kcasey McLoughlin’s research demonstrates the importance not only of greater diversity in our public institutions but also the need to critically interrogate the gendered assumptions that pervade our legal and political institutions. Kcasey was awarded the prestigious Australian Political Studies Association (APSA) Prize (2017) for her doctoral thesis, ‘Situating Women Judges on the High Court of Australia: Not just men in skirts?’ As an interdisciplinary researcher interested in feminist legal theory and feminist political theory, she is eager to press the boundaries between the disciplines of law and political science in ways that are meaningful to both disciplines.
