  • The Crisis of Higher Education: Neoliberalism and the Privileging of
           “Innovation” in The Twenty-First Century

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The authors of this paper maintain that challenging the frame of “innovation” as a privileged keyword for higher education is a fresh and useful intervention in the conversation about the neoliberalization of higher education in the United States. Since our home institution, Purdue, is being celebrated by US News for “innovation,” the focus on the concept enables us to offer a Purdue lens on the topic. The authors argue that three high profile developments that have taken place since 2013 under the leadership of Purdue President Mitch Daniels—the University Honors College, the Cornerstone Integrated Liberal Arts Program, and Purdue Global—may also be regarded as “ideological innovations.” Alongside the laudable aspects of each of these developments, we argue that each serves the administration’s plan to decrease faculty power, especially in the humanities, by promoting initiatives that, in each case, increase the precariatization of instructional labor at Purdue and that move curriculum design and the hiring of teaching staff away from traditional academic departments and toward a more centralized model of educational control under the direction of high-level university administrators in and outside the College of Liberal Arts.

  • $ over Ethics: Higher Education and the Private Prions Industry, a Symptom
           of the Theology of Neoliberalism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Neoliberalism’s impact on our everyday lives, culture, and institutions is powerful and ubiquitous. One might suspect that higher education, especially non-profit colleges and universities, would be less affected and more resistant to the expansion of market-driven logic and the hyper-capitalist ethos of neoliberalism, but much evidence points to college and university subscription to the tenants of this ideology and practice. This is especially the case as state policy leaders, particularly conservative and neoconservative Republicans, are aggressively disinvesting in higher education, reducing or removing completely governmental responsibility to ensure an educated population in favor of market-driven forces. While we provide a brief overview of the corporatized universities of today and its problematic nature, we focus on the impact of corporate donations on universities, with particular attention to the private prison industry’s intertwinement with higher education, and specifically the relationship between the GEO Group and Florida Atlantic University.

  • Creating Insecurity Through Youth Street Groups and Applying Security for
           Control and Governance. A Case Study of Barcelona Latin Kings

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper is based on an ethnographic study of the arrests and the subsequent trial and sentencing of a group of Latin Kings and Queens from Barcelona between 2015 and 2020. We analyze the actions carried out by the police, judicial institutions and media to reestablish the “hard handed” discourse in relation to these youth street groups in a time of crisis and precariousness. The concept of a “space of youth street groups” is used to construct a tool for mapping the agents who interact with these groups and the position they occupy in the social space. The interactions between these agents in Barcelona configure a new form of security governance through the creation of subjective insecurity and the promotion of punitive policies against youth street groups.

  • Ethical Considerations at the Intersection of Climate Change and
           Reproductive Justice: Directions from Green Criminology

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper explores the relationship between climate change and reproductive injustice. It does so by highlighting several ethical concerns that warrant public policy attention at the intersection of full bodily autonomy and the transition to a carbon neutral economy. In Section one, the climate change science literature addressing the health and social harm disparities for low-income communities is summarized. This summary emphasizes the effects of this harm for poor women and girls of color. In Section two, the jurisprudential history regarding full bodily autonomy and reproductive justice is presented. This recounting draws attention to the historical legacy of inequality based on race, gender, and class. In Section three, the ethical implications of climate change are presented and discussed through the analytical lens of green criminology and reproductive justice. These implications include a feminist reclaiming of full bodily autonomy for poor women and girls of color, given the health and social inequalities they disproportionately experience.

  • “Life Should be Difficult for the Poor, but Safe”: Exploring the
           Discourses Used to Garner Support for Transforming Ontario’s Community
           Housing into a Transcarceral Space

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Since the 1990s, Ontario and Canada at large have seen the rise of the neoliberal state with a concurrent punitive turn in public policy. While academic inquiry has attempted to understand the evolution of penality, the functional linkages that exist between the social assistance and penal apparatus have been largely overlooked. This paper seeks to bridge this gap through examining the way in which community housing is increasingly being envisaged as a mechanism of social control and an exclusionary tactic. Drawing on 150 newsprint media items, reports produced by non-governmental organizations, and Hansard transcripts, the hegemonic discourses surrounding Ontario’s Community Housing Renewal Strategy are explored. Particular attention is given to the proposed amendment which denies individuals criminalized for a ‘serious criminal offence’ from accessing community housing. In conceptualizing criminalized individuals as ‘non-deserving’ citizens, exclusionary tactics are legitimized as ‘crime reduction’ strategies.

  • A Theory of Suffering and Healing: Toward a Loving Justice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this essay is the creation of a theory of suffering and healing. This “ontological” theory is intended to serve as a foundation for the development of justice-related responses to harm (i.e., crime and victimization, inter alia) as part of the author’s broader writing on justice as love. Drawing on Buddhist and Christian theological wisdom along with the author’s own contemplations of self, this ontological model is offered without any assumption of applicability to anyone; readers are invited to assess its usefulness for themselves and to use or discard accordingly. The model consists of several moving parts: at the core of the model is a troika of ideas: the child within, the ocean of bliss and the theater analogy. In addition, four interrelated courses of concerns work tidally and percussively within and around the troika. If this endocosmic model resonates with readers, the hope is that it would inspire its use for the creation of other ideas and practices related to the granular, concrete, dyadic endless, endless and skilled realization of a loving justice praxis.

  • Border Control Reinterpreted: Collective Memory and the Narrative Self

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article explores the potential of historical narratives to inform and guide action, taking the case of border control in Hungary. The Hungarian government has recently criminalised irregular border crossing and made a comparison between the Ottoman Occupation and contemporary challenges of mass migration to legitimise its new measures. Qualitative interviews conducted in 2019 seem to suggest that some members of the border police, consciously or unconsciously, have drawn from this narrative repertoire to make sense of their own role in border control. Drawing on the concept of the narrative self, the article outlines how the collective memory of the Ottoman conquest may have shaped the understanding of mass migration and the self-interpretation of those involved in border control.

  • A New Theory of Globalization, Natural Resource Extraction and Violence
           Against Women: Toward Solving the Linkage Problem

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract A small, but growing, body of criminological knowledge shows that natural resource extraction activities contribute to violence against women in rural and remote areas, but the extant literature is undertheorized. This is not to say, however, that this research is not theoretically driven. While not always made explicit, almost all of it is guided, either explicitly or implicitly, by social disorganization theory and Durkheim’s anomie theory, both of which ignore the influence of patriarchal social forces embedded in many rural localities where natural resource extraction activities occur. The main objective of this paper, then, is to offer an empirically informed new critical criminological theory that has the potential to more effectively explain the linkage between natural resource extraction and violence against women in rural and remote communities around the world.

  • The Pursuit of the ‘Dead Bandit’: A Decolonial Analysis of the
           Persecution of the Marginalized in Brazil

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article examines how the persecution of dissenting and marginalized populations in Brazil has intensified under the banner of crime control since the rise of the far-right to mainstream politics. Through decolonial lenses (Walsh and Mignolo 2018; Dimou 2021), it explores the ways in which anti-human rights discourses and Brazil’s myth of racial democracy relate to the legacy of colonialism in the experiences of urban poor and racialized communities. The aims of this work are to interrogate social relations and critically engage with the intensification of authoritarian neoliberal forms of governance. Reflecting on examples, such as the persecution and criminalization of political opponents, this article sheds light on examples of how coloniality is continuously reproduced in the politics of backlash that have become globally prevalent. The politics of backlash, as a variant of contested politics, often fuelled by anger and resentment, are central in the construction of retrograde and discriminatory transformations (Alter and Zürn 2020). By examining cases in Brazil, the article offers an analysis of how ‘coloniality’ (Quijano 1992; Walsh and Mignolo 2018) enriches critical understandings of the inequalities and discourses that operate to dispossess, silence, persecute and criminalize thousands of people.

  • “A Path of Narrowing Options”: Contextualizing the Polyvictimization
           Narratives of Women Incarcerated in a South African Correctional Centre

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In South Africa, women make up less than 3% of the country’s total incarcerated population. This small representation means that little is known of their experiences prior to, during or post incarceration. Unfortunately, the number of women housed in South African carceral facilities has also steadily increased over the last decade. It is therefore imperative that gender is considered within the emergent literature of justice-involved women in South Africa. By utilizing a feminist research approach, this study aims to comprehend the shared lived experiences that preceded (') these women’s transgression of societal norms. Through the use of life history interviews, the narratives of seventeen incarcerated South African women are contextualized, allowing for a critical, gender-sensitive analysis of the challenges these women faced prior to incarceration.

  • Prisons as Law-Violators and Sites of Environmental Injustice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Criminologists have firmly established the myriad of harms and inequalities the prison industrial complex produces for those who are incarcerated, their kin, and their communities. Green criminologists and environmental sociologists, though, have begun to examine additional forms of inequities the prison produces: environmental harm and public health concerns. We draw these disciplines together to examine the extent to which correctional institutions parallel other high-polluting industries’ production of environmental harms and injustices by analyzing the Environmental Protection Agency’s ECHO database. Our results help build a case that correctional institutions violate environmental laws and regulations and produce notable environmental harms that the local environment and incarcerated population are forced to be exposed to, and cluster alongside other environmental harms.

  • No Time for Rest: An Exploration of Sleep and Social Harm in the North
           East Night-Time Economy (NTE)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article explores the problem of sleep deprivation amongst migrant workers in North East England’s night-time economy (NTE). After first outlining some of the physical and psychological effects of sleep loss, the narrative then focuses on primary accounts drawn from unstructured interviews (n = 16) and short vignettes with migrant workers. The article uses a framework grounded in social harm to explicate the declining recognition afforded to sleep and recuperation among night workers, constructing this as a socially corrosive outcome of neoliberal economic relations and the cultural injunctions that accompany it. The forfeiture of sleep among workers can also form an important point of departure for exploring a nexus of harms that suffuse the nocturnal service industry for low-paid migrant workers. These can have far-reaching consequences for well-being, as they expose the fraying of labour relations in the NTE and act as an affront to the possibility of human flourishing.

  • The Good, the Bad, and the Uncertain: State Harm, the Aftermath of
           Exoneration, and Compensation for the Wrongly Convicted

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract As the number of exonerations in the USA continues to grow, so does the need to address post-release challenges faced by those who experience wrongful conviction. Research has highlighted many challenges faced by exonerees after release, yet compensation and reentry services are often lacking. In this paper, we provide a content analysis of existing exoneree-compensation statutes. Using Westervelt and Cook’s (Crime Law Soc Change 53(3):259–275, 2010) conceptualization of the wrongly convicted as victims of state harm, we describe current policies, organizing our findings around what is good, what is bad, and what is left uncertain. We argue that during the reentry period, a time filled with extreme uncertainty, many existing laws remain inadequate and/or unclear. Rather than providing stability, existing laws often create an additional layer of uncertainty for exonerees seeking compensation and other reentry assistance as they try to rebuild their lives.

      Abstract: Abstract The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly impacted the operation of universities around the world. A transition to online platforms and remote forms of working as a consequence of national lockdown measures and campus closures has produced new labour challenges for academic faculty. This article makes use of 12 months of reporting from the academic trade press related to the experience of the pandemic in the UK higher education sector. Accounts published within Times Higher Education signpost the accelerating and accentuating effects of COVID-19 as it relates to universities’ neoliberalization; corporate managerialism within UK universities; and academic work precarization and work-based inequities.

  • “We’re Out Here Risking Our Lives”: Value-of-Life Decisions in a
           Prison Labor Program

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Acceptable levels of risk exposure are calculated based on whom is at risk and how individuals in positions of power perceive the value of those at risk. This study examines how value-of-life decisions are experienced in a prison labor program. Data come from interviews with 21 adults in custody (AICs) at a forest work camp. The AICs’ narratives are compared to Oregon’s Occupational Safety and Health Standards (Oregon OSHA) for wildland firefighting that would be required if they were not incarcerated. Because incarcerated individuals are viewed as less valuable by those in power, are not considered employees, and have no legal recourse for safety standards, they are placed in more risky working environments than non-incarcerated workers.

      Abstract: Abstract Advocated is an engagement with the new sciences (quantum mechanics, holography) that challenge Newtonian ontologies. Alternative concepts are introduced suggesting an interconnected, relational, processual, and emergent ontology. Human agency is brought back in the form of an inter- and intra-subjective co-constituted agent, schema QD. Specific applications in criminology are to assemblage theory, cognitive decision-making, methodology, and forms of social control (criminal, restorative, transformative justice).

  • ‘A Real Gap’: Consequences of Removing Reintegration Support
           in Tasmania, Australia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract As Australian imprisonment and recidivism rates continue to rise, it is increasingly important to better understand how to support “returning citizens” to adequately prepare them for post-release life. Using a case study approach focused on service provider perspectives, this article examines the consequences of removing a transitional accommodation support service on service providers and returning citizens. Participants highlighted significant consequences, such as: gaps in services; lack of support and housing; persons remaining in the system unnecessarily; persons being released without transitional support or accommodation; health implications; loss of relationships and trust; and suicide of returned citizens. Drawing on critical criminological theory, we argue that the most significant consequence was the loss of “floating support”—which involves a case worker who brokers support between agencies working with a single client—that was integrated into the program. Study findings suggest serious consequences of government decisions to defund programs in this sector.
