Professor Infanti's scholarly work has focused on two ostensibly quite different, but, in reality, quite related areas: (i) the intersection of tax and comparative legal theory and (ii) critical tax theory (i.e., the impact of the tax system on traditionally subordinated groups). Professor Infanti has authored articles relating to international taxation and the application of comparative legal theory to taxation that have appeared in publications such as the Utah Law Review, the Florida Tax Review, the Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law, the University of Pittsburgh Law Review, the Tax Management International Journal, and Taxes magazine. Professor Infanti's work in the area of critical tax theory, which focuses particularly on the application of the tax laws to lesbians and gay men, has been published in the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law, the Michigan Journal of Gender and Law, the Georgetown Journal of Gender and Law, the Buffalo Law Review, the Santa Clara Law Review, the Whittier Law Review, Unbound: The Harvard Journal of the Legal Left, the Virginia Tax Review, and The Tax Lawyer. He is also the author of the book Everyday Law for Gays and Lesbians (and Those Who Care About Them) (Paradigm Publishers) and co-editor of Critical Tax Theory: An Introduction (Cambridge University Press).
