Introducing the OSI 2017 Faculty: Richard Perry

We are happy to announce that Richard Perry will return to this year’s Osnabrück Summer Institute to co-convene Workshop 1 with our director Peter Schneck.

Richard Perry is Lecturer-in-Residence and Senior Fellow in Legal Studies at the University of California Berkeley. He is also Professor of Justice Studies at San Jose’ State University. His previous appointments include Assistant Professor in Law & Society at UC Irvine (with secondary appointments in Native American Studies, Environmental and Global Peace and Conflict Studies) and Research Fellow at the Centre de Philosophie du Droit, Louvain, Belgium.

He was the co-PI and co-convenor (with Bill Maurer) of a multi-year organized working group in law and culture, funded by the University of California Humanities Institute, whose project was titled “After the End of History: The Governmentality of Space.” Several volumes emerged from this project, including Globalization Under Construction: Law, Identity, Governmentality (University of Minnesota Press 2003); Reflections on Water (MIT Press 2001) and Water, Place, and Equity (MIT Press 2008), as well as a number of articles and chapters on spatial governmentality. He has been a Visiting Scholar at the UC Berkeley Center for the Study of Law & Society. Recently, he has been a participant in the Critical Geographies Research Network of the Law & Society Association.

He holds a J.D. from Stanford Law School and a Ph.D. in linguistics from the University of California, Berkeley (doctoral advisor, George Lakoff).
