Professor Heidi Matthews researches and teaches in the areas of international criminal law, the law of war, international legal history, political theory, domestic criminal law, and law and sexuality. Her work theorizes contemporary shifts in the practice and discourse of the global legal regulation of political and sexual violence, with particular attention to history and gender, as well as political, critical, and aesthetic theory. She is co-PI on a grant from Women and Gender Equality Canada’s Feminist Response and Recovery Fund, titled “Creating Space: Precarious Status Women Leading Local Pandemic Responses,” and NPI on a grant from the Government of Canada’s New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF) special call for innovative approaches to research in the pandemic context, titled “Community Science and Accountability for Canada’s Colonial Genocide Past and Present." Both projects are collaborative endeavours with multiple researchers and community partners.
