Mariana Valverde

Department of Law
University of Toronto


Mariana Valverde's current main research interests are: urban law and governance (historically and in the present), and, at the theoretical level, Foucault, sexuality studies, theories of spatiotemporality, and actor-network theory. A fellow of the Royal Society of Canada since 2006, she is the author of six sole-authored books, six co-edited collections, about 50 refereed journal articles, and various research reports and popular publications. She has twice won the Law and Society Association’s Jacob award, its main book prize. As of early 2014 Mariana's main priority has been finishing a book, to be published by Routledge London, entitled “Chronotopes of Law” – a work of social-legal theory showing how Bakhtin’s work on dialogsm and spatiotemporality can be used to overcome legal studies’ current tendency to separate spatial analyses from theorizations of temporality, and in the process wholly neglecting jurisdiction. The book builds on a number of already published theoretical articles but has been written from scratch.
