Call for Paper: Landscapes of Confinement at the EU borders Exploring the ‘Hotspot approach’

29/30 October 2020, Dept. of Political Sciences, University of Bari ‘Aldo Moro’, Bari (Italy)

This international interdisciplinary workshop provides an opportunity to reflect, both conceptually and empirically, on the challenges to the protection of migrants’ fundamental rights raised by the increasing institutionalization of the ‘hotspot approach’. This approach is indeed embedded, and needs to be analyzed, within a wider EU bordering project which rests on a long-standing process of migrants’ criminalization
that, in turn, reinforces the racial and nationality-based segmentation of the European society.

This interdisciplinary event will be of interest to scholars from law, criminology, sociology, social policy, human geography, anthropology, political science, and psychology. Early career scholars are encouraged to send abstracts. Attendance is free. We have limited funds available to cover travel and accommodation for paper presenters.

Confirmed keynote speakers are Mary Bosworth, Sergio Carrera, Martina Tazzioli. The workshop is sponsored by the Apulian Regional Council (Consiglio Regionale della Puglia), and it is organized jointly by the Department of Political Sciences of the ‘Aldo Moro’ University of Bari, and the research network ‘Border Criminologies’ of the University of Oxford.

Email your proposal (500 words maximum) by 23:59pm (GMT-4) on June 26, 2020 at including your name, your email, your position and a short bio in your proposal. Please, also indicate if you would like to apply for travel and accommodation funds.
We aim to publish the papers discussed in this international workshop as a special issue
of a journal or as a collective book. If you are interested in putting your work forward for consideration, please indicate this in your proposal.

Information about acceptance will be sent by July 24, 2020.

Call For Paper: Dynamics of harm and social control in the transformation of capitalism

48th Annual Conference of the European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control 

Campus Luigi Einaudi, Torino, Italy, 2-5 September 2020

Over past decades, capitalism has undergone transformations that have posed radical challenges for critical thinking. From the harms of ‘old’ capitalism to its most recent transformations, the world is experiencing new forms of exploitation, contradictions and challenges. Political movements around ethical consumption and green capitalism increasingly overshadow the fundamental problems at the heart of corporate capital: exploitation of human and natural resources, inequality and state-corporate expansionism.

Undoubtedly, one of the most pressing contemporary issues is the rise of surveillance capitalism, which increasingly invades our daily lives and shapes our subjectivities (individually and collectively). The transformations of new surveillance capitalism are affecting people intersectionally, relating to class, religion, race, gender, economic status, educational attainment, and countries where people live. Our choices and decisions (from what we eat to whom we date!), risk creating new and effective tools for further exploitation and social control. This is particularly true for the ways we communicate, move and experience in, for example, the ‘smart city’ and ‘smart university’.

In addition, the persistent processes of privatisation and the role played by corporates in the management of criminal justice (including the military/prison industrial complex, Artificial Intelligence, policing, and border control technologies) has radically modified the idea of justice, social inclusion and punishment as a prerogative of the state and state-corporate alliances. In this scenario, whitecollar and corporate crimes evolve toward new domains and forms of social harm, which themselves paradoxically remain areas of deregulation and lenient punishment. Finally, the transformation of capitalism and white-collar crimes have also promoted new populisms, which have deployed nuanced criminal justice toolkits to control, repress and demonise many forms of political opposition, resistance and dissent.

Call for Paper: Decolonising Criminal Justice and Penal Power: Colonial Legacies,
Contemporary Problems and Subaltern Perspectives

17-18 September 2020, University of Warwick (UK) – Deadline 15th March 2020

The workshop will host panels with two or three presenters and a discussant; each presenter will briefly introduce their work, which will be subsequently commented on by the discussant and debated with the broader audience. Additionally, the workshop will also have a closing roundtable which will seek to bring together the workshop’s key conclusions. The presenters will submit drafts of their papers ahead of the workshop, which will be circulated among participants so as to enable closer engagement with all the papers.

Presentations and discussions will engage with the following general questions:
• How can postcolonial theory, studies and perspectives shed light on contemporary penal governance?
• What are the substantive and methodological contributions such engagement can make
to the study of crime, criminalization and violence in a globalized world, and which can
help us critically engage with the recalcitrance of nationalism?
• How can we advance an emancipatory project in criminology, while still recognizing it as being, to a large extent, a discipline created from the perspective of the colonizer?

Papers will focus on one or more of the following broad themes:
• Uprooting the Colonial Legacies of Crime and Justice: direct institutional and structural
legacies; indirect legacies of colonialism on questions of crime and justice;
internalized/repressed histories and biases; ‘blind spots’ in criminology; towards a
phenomenology of subjection.
• Southern and Postcolonial Approaches to Criminology: reassessing ‘familiar’
criminological themes through postcolonial lenses and/or southern epistemologies;
rethinking punishment, victimization and criminalization; race, gender and postcolonial
violence; penal power and imperialism.
• Nationalism, Globalisation, Crime and Justice: criminology and development; border
control; privatization and neoliberal trends in penal power; translations and transplantations of penal practices.
• Decolonizing Criminology: how to use the ‘marginal’ status of criminology to tap into its
emancipatory potential; rethinking curricula and research in criminology through
subaltern agencies and perspectives.

Qual è il ruolo delle organizzazioni sovranazionali come l’Unione Europea e come partecipano nella costruzione della detenzione? Qual è il ruolo delle organizzazioni internazionali, delle Ong e delle associazioni umanitarie, e come esse partecipano, o si oppongono, alla detenzione? Come il concetto di cittadinanza ha influenzato, e come esso riflette, precedenti e attuali strategie di esclusione? Che tipo di spazi sono i campi? Come si può utilizzare lo spazio per escludere?

Common studies sessions: Social Struggles,

Activism and Criminology.

The Common Session will take place in Budapest from the 8 to the 10 of April at the Faculty of Law of Eötvös Loránd University, ELTE (1053 Budapest, Egyetem tér 1-3.). This Common Session focuses on social struggles that are corollaries of an increasingly unequal and ambiguous world, and it also examines the question of criminology’s public roles and of criminological engagement related to them. How can criminology, apart from understanding the social world, contribute to a more just society? Is there a way for the criminological imagination to challenge the contemporary social, cultural, political and economic patterns and ease the pain on the local level by engaging with struggles for social and legal justice? If there is, could an ‘activist criminology’ play a role in dissolving the boundaries separating production of knowledge and activism? What would the methodological implications be? Papers exploring the different aspects of criminology, activism and social struggles on a wide range of related topics are welcome. For instance: criminalization, environmental and social harms, resistance and social movements, crimes of the powerful, the rise of populist and authoritarian governments and its implications for penal populism, proliferation of surveillance technologies and its effects on social control, social exclusion, everyday lives and struggles of marginalized people and social groups, victimization and intersectionality, difficulties of the universal acceptance of human rights, academia and activism, methodological considerations. Please deliver the following information no later than March 8th to list of your respective staff and student delegation titles and abstracts of those who wish to present at the conference.

  • Registration Electronic Monitoring Conference 2020
    From the 21st until the 23rd of April 2020, it is time for the 12th edition of the Electronic Monitoring Conference in Helsinki, Finland. This years theme will be
    ‘Electronic monitoring and probation goals: a symbiotic relationship’. Electronic monitoring remains a relatively isolated example of the widespread deployment of technologies in probation practice and community sanctions more broadly. Technologies are already part of our everyday lives but, in common with other public services, are likely to effect on probation practice. As technologies develop and begin to penetrate into probation practices to a greater extent, the challenges of using them in ways which complement probation work grows. The focus of the 12th electronic monitoring conference will be on developing understanding of how electronic monitoring can support probation practices and how other technologies may assist with the use of EM to meet probation goals. For more information about the programme of the conference or the registration, please visit the CEP website.
    Hosted by the Erasmus University Rotterdam / June 8-10, 2020 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, The 9th biennial Surveillance & Society conference of the Surveillance Studies Network, with keynotes by • José van Dijck (Utrecht University) on “Dataism and dataveillance in the age of AI” and • Simone Browne (University of Texas) on “The Ecologies of Surveillance Technologies” and • award ceremonies of the SSN2020 Outstanding Achievement Award and the SSN 2020 Arts Prize Visual acuity has historically been measured based on the normative value of 20/20 vision. Yet by the year 2020, the clarity of vision regarding surveillance practices and their implications remains clouded. The metaphors of vision and optics are central – and privileged – components of surveillance research. This conference considers three interrelated lines of sight to bring increased focus on understanding, evaluating and responding to surveillance.

  •  Le strade della teppa: percorsi e prospettive di conflitto controculturale e soggettivazione politica –  Giornata di studi, 8 novembre 2019, Padova

La recente riedizione da parte di RedStarPress di Teppa. Storie del conflitto giovanile dal Rinascimento ai giorni nostri di Valerio Marchi è un evento importante. Saggio storico sulla “teppa”, scritto “per la teppa”, il libro (pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1998) è parte indissociabile di quel percorso politico e culturale, iniziato nella Gran Bretagna del secondo dopoguerra, segnato dall’irruzione al centro del dibattito pubblico di nuove soggettività giovanili che interpellavano in profondità i tradizionali canoni di interpretazione marxisti. È necessario partire da questi sommovimenti sociali per comprendere a pieno la loro traduzione teorica, impegnata da un lato a leggere il conflitto laddove le correnti istituzionali non vedevano altro che istinti e ignoranza, dall’altro a pensare il problematico rapporto tra l’atto teppistico e la cultura dominante, in particolar modo il ruolo decisivo di quest’ultima nella sua definizione/strumentalizzazione. Osservando la contingente fase socio-politica, l’opera di Marchi (la cui biografia, simbolicamente, contiene teoria e pràxis) ci appare oggi tanto necessaria quanto perturbante. Il rinnovato interesse per i suoi scritti e per la sua prospettiva assume senso sintomatico in un contesto in cui si susseguono traduzioni e riedizioni di scritti e riflessioni, principalmente della scuola di Birmingham, sulle traiettorie sottoculturali che hanno scandito le trasformazioni economiche e politiche europee della seconda metà del Novecento. Nell’attuale congiuntura politica, in cui il governo della crisi rivela in maniera sempre più nitida i suoi caratteri razzisti, sessisti e più generalmente reazionari, in cui le ondate di moral panics contrappongono, in una dinamica mortifera di “sbiancamento” e razzializzazione, vecchi e “nuovi” barbari, sentiamo dunque il bisogno di riprendere le fila di ragionamenti interrotti, o perlomeno rimasti confinati in alcuni ristretti circuiti sociali. Si tratta di territori che, sebbene spesso sbrigativamente ridotti ad una dimensione impolitica, non smettono di interpellarci: nell’atto teppistico si registra “un’infrazione continuata dei canoni del contratto sociale”. Nonostante ci sembri indubbio che l’Accademia, in quanto luogo di riproduzione della cultura dominante, sia stata storicamente sorda a queste dinamiche e, nei casi peggiori, si sia fatta vettore di uno sguardo voyeurista e moralista, pensiamo sia possibile e auspicabile un doppio movimento: da un lato, di apertura di spazi teoricamente conflittuali, e dall’altro – al di là di posture istituzionalmente pedagogiche – di contaminazione con la molteplicità delle espressioni controculturali. Del resto, lo spazio accademico è da diversi anni soggetto a note dinamiche di precarizzazione, che rendono necessario riconoscerne le caratteristiche di spazio conteso e conflittuale. L’obiettivo è dunque rinnovare questo sguardo teorico-politico per metterlo alla prova del presente, rimanendo fedeli non a un paradigma ma a un intento, e lasciando le consacrazioni e le posture contemplative alla brigata “Appendili e Frustali”.

La giornata studio “Le strade della teppa” vuole darsi come prima occasione di incontro e di connessione di ricercatrici e ricercatori, con l’idea di riprendere il filo di questi ragionamenti, recuperando strumenti analitici e metodologici che possano interrogarci sulle direzioni che le teppe hanno preso negli ultimi anni, tra continuità e fratture nella loro produzione e nei conflitti che attraversano. Per questo saranno accolti contributi empirici e/o teorici che si sviluppino in accordo con questa prospettiva. Saranno apprezzate anche ricerche in corso, che speriamo la giornata studi possa contribuire a sviluppare. Saranno inoltre particolarmente graditi contributi provenienti da ricercat* alle prime fasi della loro carriera.

Tra le tematiche possibili, suggeriamo come possibili linee di ricerca:

. Espressioni ed organizzazioni delle culture del conflitto: linguaggi e forme di rinnovamento oltre la costruzione della novità culturale come “emergenza” e pericolo;

. Rabbia, odio, violenza urbana: politiche delle emozioni “incivili”, definizione affettiva del politico e costruzione delle soggettività;

. Istituzioni e pratiche del controllo e della normalizzazione delle controculture: la macchina “civilizzatrice” tra repressione e spettacolo;

. Geografie della teppa: processi di territorializzazione delle controculture e del controllo;

. Prospettive translocali e transnazionali: influenze, egemonie, connessioni delle controculture.

. Divisioni tra teppe: contrapposizioni, processi di razzializzazione e prospettive di ricomposizione politica;

. Prospettive critiche sulle formazioni controculturali e forme di resistenza e dominio nell’intersezione tra classe, razza e genere.

Gli abstract non devono superare le 500 parole e devono essere inviati, congiuntamente a una breve biografia (circa 100 parole), recapiti ed eventuale affiliazione, all’indirizzo email entro il 15 giugno 2019.

  • European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control; 47th Annual Conference. Can Batlló, Barcelona, 4, 5, 6 September 2019. RESISTING STATE-CORPORATE HARMS IN TIMES OF REPRESSION. TOWARDS A THEORY OF INSURRECTION.

MORE – registration, contributions, accommodation, programme (tba), etc. @  Across the globe, there has been an undoubtable evolution of the intimate bond between states and corporations. The impacts have been prolific: as state-corporate power increases, the social, economic and political wellbeing of populations and ecosystems has degenerated greatly in many areas. Political repression has ensued across regions of resistance. Whilst wealth has increased for a minority elite, violent economic policies continue to inflict social, economic, emotional and political harms against some of the most powerless in society. Meanwhile, so-called ‘globalisation’ often imposes market totalisation: an essentially colonial dynamic to manage populations through the mechanisms of warfare. Indeed, we are increasingly seeing the militarization of police forces and borders, with armies patrolling the provinces of ‘world geoeconomics’: life becomes privatised, and death is outsourced. In response to these shifts, the 2019 Annual Conference of the European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control will be held in Barcelona. Our objective is to give voice to those who resist, and offer means to collaborate towards the collective construction of an insurrectional theory based on a variety of practical experiences. This is a chance to expand on a theory and practice which is based on the legitimate right to a dignified life. A theory to pull down the walls between discourses and struggles for justice, thus dissolving the divide between so-called ‘knowledge production’ and social organisation: it is always the latter what facilitates the former. We look forward to taking this opportunity to build activist and research agendas in this direction. We particularly encourage papers and panels that draw together activism and academia, and bring to the table examples of where toolkits or actions for resistance have been successful – or not. We aim to build a mutual learning environment within which attendees and speakers can develop ideas to move forward in various areas across the spectrum of social inequality and multiple oppressions or violence. The call for contributions is organized under streams pertaining to the titles of the European Group’s Working Groups. Please submit a summary of your contribution (máx. 600 words) to the relevant stream (see list below) by 20 April 2019Contributions will be accepted once the registration form is submitted: and sent to

  • 6 PhD researchers in Law and Criminology:

We are looking for six PhD researchers who will perform excellent research in Law or Criminology in connection with one of the research themes pursued by Erasmus School of Law. This is an open application round, in which candidates are selected on the basis of their professional qualification, the letter of motivation, the quality of their own research proposal, and the extent to which this fits within the research profile of ESL. EGSL has created a two-phased structure for the four-year doctoral programme: a probationary period (14 months) followed by a 34-month PhD programme. The probationary period consists of a full educational programme of 60 ECTS (including 20 ECTS for individual research). In the remaining 34-month period PhD researchers focus on research and the completion of their thesis. In both phases structured guidance is provided by the thesis supervisors and a doctorate committee composed of three senior researchers and the EGSL Director or one of the EGSL PhD Coordinators.
