Dr Rob Clucas from Hull University will present on ‘LGB(T) People and the Church of England: the Legal and Institutional Field’
Rob’s current research interests are in the field of sexuality, gender and the law, with a particular interest in church equality issues, and he is drawn to integrating Gestalt theory into his research and teaching practice. He has published and presented on: equality issues and the Church of England; a law-specific disciplinary approach to pedagogy in higher education; and as B. Clucas, on legal theory; medical ethics, particularly conjoined twins; human rights; children’s rights and welfare, and with G. Johnstone and T. Ward, he co-edited the Nomos collection Torture: Moral Absolutes and Ambiguities. He was supported by the AHRB Research Leave Scheme for the project “Children’s rights: autonomy and the welfare/best interests tension. A Welsh perspective”, a study on the practice of the first Children’s Commissioner for Wales. His PhD thesis was concerned with a modified application of Alan Gewirth’s moral theory to the rights of children.
He was the inaugural Chair of the LGBT Staff Network at the University of Hull, and has been a National Trustee of the Anglican pressure group Changing Attitude. He is a trainee Gestalt psychotherapist.
