Session 192: TC6 -> CONVICT CRIMINOLOGY ROUNDTABLE 1: New Voices (Sponsored by the Division of Critical Criminology)
Time: 8:00AM to 9:30 AM on Thursday, November 14
Place: Wabash
Session Chair: Stephen C. Richards, Northern Kentucky University
Session Chair: Charles M. Terry, Saint Louis University
Convict Criminology is primarily essays and empirical research written by convicts or exconvicts, on their way to completing or already in possession of a Ph.D., or enlightened academics who critique existing literature, policies, and practices. As the field of Criminology matures it incorporates new voices, ostensibly refutes established hypotheses and theories, and develops new ones. Critical criminology contributes many of the most innovative theoretical and developments. It is our hope that the New School of Convict Criminology will support critical criminologists to "ground" their theory in ethnographic accounts. This, in turn, will inform specific policy recommendations that will encourage academics, policy makers, and correctional administrators.
