Die diesjährige Hersttagung steht ganz im Zeichen des 25-jährigen Bestehens der Tagungsreihe. Im Herbst 1984 fand die erste Common Study Programme on Criminal Justice and Critical Criminology in Rom statt.
Das Thema der diesjärigen Tagung lautet daher konsequenterweise:
What is Critical? Key Themes For Critical Analysis in 1984 and 2009
StudentInnen sind aufgerufen, Abstracts für Ihre geplanten Beiträge an die Veranstalter zu schicken:
Call for Papers:
This autumn it is 25 years ago that the first Common study session of the ‘Common Study Programme on Criminal Justice and Critical Criminology’ was held in Rome, Italy. Though the composition of the group has changed over the years, and we have become more a criminology programme, whilst the initial focus on criminal justice has diminished, we are alive an kickin’, common study sessions are well attended and the critical profile and the loose – if not anarchic – organisational structure have been maintained.
Students are invited to present papers on a particular theme that, in their opinion, requires a thorough critical analysis in today’s criminology. What is really pivotal? What do we notably neglect? You can think of virtually any theme (and we expect various issues that have been discussed at previous common study sessions, such as corporate crime, cultural criminology, gender, green criminology, the local and the global in urban criminology, global criminology, migration and multiculturalism, political crime and crime and politics, youth groups and identities and many other themes will re-appear in Rotterdam, but we want to ask you to explicitly deal with (1) the question why you think a particular theme needs a critical analysis, (2) what the implications are for the domain (or subject-matter) of criminology and possibly also (3) how we are to study the proposed theme – as regards the research design.” Please send via your University coordinator a title (and abstract, if possible) for inclusion in the programme.
