Introducing the OSI 2024 Faculty: Leila Neti

Posted at 3:18 pm under Uncategorized

We are happy to announce Leila Neti as a member of the OSI 2024 faculty! Leila is the Irma and Jay Price Professor of English at Occidental College, Los Angeles. She specializes in Victorian literature, contemporary Anglophone literature, and law and literature. Leila will convene a workshop with Peter Schneck and Laura Zander on the topic of interdisciplinarity.

Her recent book Colonial Law in India and the Victorian Imagination (Cambridge UP, 2021) explores the shared cultural logic of both legal opinions and novels during the Victorian era.

Her published articles have appeared in differences: A Journal of Feminist Cultural Studies, Interventions: International Journal of Postcolonial Studies, Law and Literature, and in various edited collections. Leila has been collaborating with the Universities of Osnabrück and Münster within the context of several research projects and workshops, including “Equity and Postcolonial Legal and Literary Imaginaries” and “Legal Universalism and Empire.”

We are very excited about Leila joining the OSI 2024 faculty, and we are very much looking forward to her workshop on interdisciplinarity!
