Focusing on the nexus between theory and practice, this subject engages with critical criminological work today. Although it is described as an interdisciplinary discipline, criminology nevertheless has key concerns concerning the nature of crime, criminality and criminal justice processes. This subject focuses on contemporary areas of concern and interest in criminological theory and practice, as well as opening out onto the broader debates, past and present, within which these are situated. It examines areas of contemporary criminological and socio-legal interest (such as risk, space, postcoloniality, governance, representation) and seeks to connect them with the broader social, political and philosophical traditions with which they engage. It will provide graduate students with a sophisticated and critical grounding in criminological theory and practice today, but also seeks to reflect out on what current criminological concerns demonstrate about the more general enduring themes (such as identity; history; the relation between the state and the individual) at play for criminology.
