Sara Kendall studies the discursive forms and material practices of international law and global governance. After earning her doctorate at the University of California at Berkeley, where she wrote her dissertation on the Special Court for Sierra Leone, she worked as a researcher in the Department of Public International Law at Leiden University, where she studied the effects of International Criminal Court interventions in Kenya and Uganda. She also taught international relations at the University of Amsterdam before coming to Kent.  She is currently working on a book-length project on the International Criminal Court, in which she uses approaches and insights drawn from the humanities, the interpretive social sciences, and critical legal theory.
