* PhD dissertation. Queering the Middle: History, Community and Law in the UK Co-operative Movement. By Tara Mulqueen. Law/Critical Legal Studies at Birkbeck College, University of London.


The dissertation "critically examines regulatory paradigms for co-operatives and the social economy more generally in the UK. This involves looking at the persistent division between the social and the economic, and the myriad ways this division is reinforced by both law and norm."
