Research Overview


  • Luis' key research fields are jurisprudence and political philosophy. He broadly conceives jurisprudence as a normative knowledge on how the techniques of law (justice) relate to the demands of action (prudence). His current research accordingly delves into the ways in which culture and history determine our conceptions of building community, living lawfully and pursuing justice.

    Luis' main research interests are Human Rights; Political Theory; Cultural Studies; Utopianism; Law and the Humanities; Law and Popular Culture; Critical Legal Theory; Feminist Jurisprudence; Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL); Latin American Legal History and Politics and European Legal History and Politics. He is particularly interested in developing and applying critical methodologies and cultural legal studies both to enhance the understanding of legal, political and social institutions in Latin America and the Mediterranean countries in Europe, and to build bridges between the legal cultures in these regions and Australia.
