Professor of Law, University of California Davis Law School. Professor Sunder is a leading scholar in the legal regulation of culture. Her work traverses numerous legal fields, from intellectual property and cultural property to human rights law and the First Amendment. She asks how age-old legal doctrines impede, rather than facilitate, change and modernity within traditional cultures. Adopting an interdisciplinary method, she argues that cultural studies and globalization studies can help us to modernize antiquated laws for the 21st century. Her recent publications include: “Enlightened Constitutionalism,” Connecticut Law Review (symposium paper, forthcoming 2005); “The Romance of the Public Domain,” California Law Review (2004); “Piercing the Veil,” Yale Law Journal (2003); and “Cultural Dissent,” Stanford Law Review (2001). She has authored numerous comments and chapters in books and is the editor of Gender and Feminist Theory in Law and Society (forthcoming 2005). She is a contributor to Findlaw.com.
