In 2023, we are exploring texts that consider relationships between law and the inhuman, law in/as nature, and more-than-human communities and relations.

Our focus for this week will be: Dipesh Chakrabarty, ‘The Difficulty of Being Modern’ in The Climate of History in a Planetary Age (2021) 95-113.

We are associated with and share common intellectual and activist pursuits with the La Trobe Climate Network.

The group is co-convened by Roanna McClelland and Dr Kathleen Birrell. We meet fortnightly, online.

Please email rmcclelland@student.unimelb.edu.au to RSVP and for access to reading resources.


In Semester 1 2023, our readings include a focus on the work of Professor Margaret Davies, in anticipation of a Workshop and Masterclass at La Trobe Law School on 20-21 July 2023. Stay tuned for details.
