Dr Ann Mumford specialises in tax law, fiscal institutions and equality. The scope of Ann’s published work has ranged from feminist perspectives on taxation law; to, as a contributor to the “new” fiscal sociology movement, the integration of tax legal scholarship into the realm of economic sociology.
In teaching, Ann has extensive experience as course convener and programme director of undergraduate and post-graduate degrees in commercial law, tax law, and law and accounting. Ann regularly supports non-governmental organizations working to further women’s economic equality, and works with scholarly organizations to support socio-legal research in the law of taxation. She has spoken at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the German Bundestag, and at several scholarly events on the importance of viewing taxation law as a transnational subject. In particular, as one of the convenors of the Law and Society Association’s collaborative research networks, titled ‘international socio-legal feminisms’, Ann has served as an advocate for border-crossing research into the impact of global tax systems on equality and opportunity. As a researcher, more generally, Ann’s work has focused on international, comparative, and socio-legal, feminist legal perspectives, particularly those that arise through taxation law. Ann is the author of two monographs, Taxing Culture: Towards A Theory of Tax Collection Law (2002, Aldershot: Ashgate: Socio-Legal Studies Series; General Editor: Philip A. Thomas), and Tax Policy, Women and the Law: UK and Comparative Perspectives, Cambridge University Press (2010, Cambridge Tax Law Series – General Editor, John Tiley).
