Qualifications: LLB(Hons) (2016), MA (2017), PhD (2020), AFHEA (2020).
Dr Christos Marneros comes from an interdisciplinary background with studies in Law (LLB (Hons), University of Southampton 2016) and Political Philosophy (MA, Royal Holloway, University of London 2017) and PhD in Law (University of Kent 2020).
He joined Kent Law School in 2018 first as an Assistant Lecturer in Law, becoming a Lecturer in Law in 2021.
Dr Marneros’ current research focuses on the intersections between political theory, legal theory and continental philosophy. In particular, he is examining the critiques that anarchic and anarchist thought unleashes against the law and state mentality. In addition, Dr Marneros’ research seeks to question and examine how anarchic and anarchist practices, modes of being and thinking can combat ‘the police’ (both as an institution and as a mode of being and thinking). Ultimately, Dr Marneros is currently working on his first monograph, titled Human Rights After Deleuze: Towards an An-archic Jurisprudence, which is to be published by Hart Publishing in 2022. The monograph, which draws on his doctoral thesis, examines Gilles Deleuze’s critique of human rights and investigates how this critique could function as a fundamental step that points towards an alternative, an-archic jurisprudence beyond the dogmatism of human rights, rights and law more broadly.
