Call for Expressions of Interest
International Handbook of Activist Criminology
We are seeking Expressions of Interest for Emerald’s International Handbook of Activist Criminology, due to be published in 2022.
We are interested in receiving contributions from the activist community as well as the academic community. As a general guide, we encourage people to consider how their proposed contribution might relate to one of the following themes:
- Histories of activism and criminology, including colonialism and its legacies
- Conceptualising activist criminology / activism in criminology
- Geographies of activist criminology
- Institutional contexts of activist criminology, e.g. social, racial and Indigenous justice; harms of criminalisation; policing; prisons; courts; media; migration and mobility; rights; and violence and sexualised violence
- Contemporary activism and criminal and social justice campaigning
- Methodologies for studying and researching activist criminology
- Future research and new directions in activist criminology
Potential contributors should email Greg Martin (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a Title and Abstract (100-150 words).
The closing date for Expressions of Interest is Thursday 12 November 2020.
If successful, we expect the book contract to be agreed in the first quarter of 2021 and, once contributions are confirmed, we expect first drafts to be returned 9 months later, approximately end of 2021. Chapters will be 4,000-5,000 words in length.
