The School is pleased to confirm that Professor Katherine Biber will be giving the 2nd Annual Greta Bird Lecture in Legal Theory and critique on 29 November in the Fountain Room at Lismore City Hall. Named after founding faculty member and critical feminist and race scholar, Adjunct Professor Greta Bird, the series was launched last year by Professor Michele Bratcher Goodwin from the University of California, Irvine.
Professor Biber, from the Law School at the University of Technology Sydney, is a legal scholar, criminologist and cultural historian. Her paper, ‘The Afterlife of Criminal Evidence’ reflects a compelling and highly acclaimed research interest in the laws of evidence and criminal procedure, and the role of documentation, visual culture and particularly photography in the law.
Katherine’s most recent monograph is In Crime’s Archive: The Cultural Afterlife of Evidence (Routledge, 2018).
