Drucilla Cornell is an Emeritus Professor of Political Science, Women’s Studies, and Comparative Literature at Rutgers University. She is a playwright and also launched The uBuntu Project in South Africa in 2003 and has been working with the project ever since. Professor Cornell’s theoretical and political writings span a tremendous range of both topics and disciplines. From her early work in Critical Legal Studies and Feminist Theory to her more recent work on South Africa, transitional justice, and the jurisprudence of Ronald Dworkin, Professor Cornell continues to think through new and evolving issues in philosophy and politics of global significance. Her latest title, coauthored with Stephen Seely, is called ‘The Spirit of Revolution: Beyond the Dead Ends of Man’, and she has recently edited ‘Creolizing Rosa Luxemburg’ with Jane Anna Gordon, which is forthcoming.

Karin van Marle joined the Department of Public Law, University of the Free State in February 2019.  Before joining the UFS she worked as professor in the Department of Jurisprudence, University of Pretoria for 20 years where she taught Jurisprudence on undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Numerous Doctoral and Research Masters have completed their studies under her supervision. She currently supervises students working in the field of critical jurisprudence, law and transformation and feminist theory. Van Marle holds the degree BLC (UP, 1991), LLB (UP, 1993), LLM (UNISA, 1996) and LLD (UNISA, 2000). Her research falls within the broad field of law and the humanities and involves critical theory, legal philosophy and jurisprudence. Her work on post-1994 jurisprudence engages with the crisis of modernity and a rethinking of law and legal theory along the lines of fragility, finitude and a ‘giving up of certitudes’. She is an ethical feminist and her research and writing are inspired by and embedded in feminist theory. She has published widely in national and international journals and books. She serves on the international editorial boards of Law and CritiqueFeminist Legal Studies and the international advisory board of Legalities Journal. She is an adjunct professor at Southern Cross University, Australia and is Fellow at Stias (Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study)
