Areas of research supervision

Peter Fitzpatrick offers research supervision in the following areas:

  • post-structural and postcolonial theory
  • the new imperialism
  • imperial legality
  • sovereignty and Indigenous rights
  • political philosophy

If you are interested in pursuing research in any of these areas, you should first read our advice on how to apply for MPhil/PhD research before submitting an application.

Peter also organises a fortnightly discussion group on Law and Social Theory for PhD students. This tends to concentrate on key texts, but it also provides a forum for students to present their own work-in-progress. Visiting scholars and speakers are often involved in the work of the group. He also organises a texts group in which speakers engage with and lead a discussion of a text that is of particular significance to them.
