Kamari Clarke has always been attentive to the ways society’s comfort with long-held traditions can stand in the way of necessary change. Her research into how legal, cultural and political practices travel and are refashioned around the world has consistently pointed toward new possibilities for justice and equity, particularly in the global South.
The recent winner of a Guggenheim Fellowship, Clarke is a Distinguished Professor at the Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies, and the Centre for Diaspora & Transnational Studies in the Faculty of Arts & Science. For over 20 years, she has developed expertise in — among others — law, religion, and the politics of globalization and race.
