Kathryn ('Kate') Henne


Kate is an interdisciplinarily trained legal anthropologist whose work focuses on the interface between regulation and embodiment. Currently a research fellow at the Regulatory Institutions Network (RegNet) at the Australian National University, she is also the Communications Liaison for the Association for Political and Legal Anthropology and a lead collaborator on the digital archiving project, Critical Eyes: Re-imagining Bodies and Boundaries of Prison. She holds a PhD in Criminology, Law and Society from the University of California at Irvine with a Specialization in Anthropologies of Science, Medicine and Technology and Graduate Emphases in Feminist Studies and Critical Theory. Her book manuscript, tentatively titled, Strict Liabilities: Citizenship and the Cultural Logics of Policing Dope in Sport, traces the transnational implications of ‘fair play’ in international sport as it shifts alongside the regulatory regimes aimed at protecting it during the 20th century and in contemporary contexts. Beyond academics, she avidly plays rugby.
