Kevin W. Gray

I am a JD candidate at Osgoode Hall Law School. I was previously a visiting scholar in philosophy at Boston College and the University of Frankfurt, and in law at Osgoode Hall Law School, and the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto. I was also Assistant Professor of International Studies (with tenure) and Director of the Gulf Studies Center at the American University of Sharjah (AUS). I ran the Mooting Program at (AUS), coaching teams in the Jessup, Ferrell, and ICC Moot Competitions.

I hold a PhD from Laval University in legal and political philosophy (2011). As a visiting scholar at Boston College I audited courses in philosophy and law at BC and Harvard Law School, and in graduate school studied at the Free University of Brussels, and the University of Frankfurt. I received my Hon BSc in Physics and Mathematics from the University of Toronto (2000).

My current research focuses on the relationship between critical theory and international law, and am working on a monograph which engages with recent work on global constitutionalism and legal pluralism. I am also writing a monograph with Thomas W. Simon, entitled the Birth and Death of Legal Radicalism (under contract with Springer).

I also co-edit, with Hassan Bashir, a book series at Lexington Books on the spread of branch and foreign campuses in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Our book, Western Higher Education in the Middle East and North Africa, edited with Stephen Keck, was published in 2016 by Lexington Press.
