The latest in the Carceral Geography Working Group’s Book Review series has just been published. Cheryl McGeachen of the University of Glasgow reviews Carceral Spatiality: Dialogues between Geography and Criminology, edited by Dominique Moran and Anna K Schliehe, and published in 2017 by Palgrave Macmillan as one of their Palgrave Studies in Prisons and Penology.

Carceral Spatiality originated in a 2014 session at the RGS-IBG Annual Conference in London, addressing the conference theme of co-production. It developed to include chapters (from Lorraine ven Blerk; Caitlin Gormley; Anna Schliehe; David Scheer and Colin Lorne; Jennifer Turner; Rebecca Foster; Clemens Bernhardt, Bettina van Hoven and Paulus Huigen; Sarah Armstrong and Andrew Jefferson), many of which started to take shape in conversations initiated at the conference itself.

Cheryl McGeachan finds that the collection ‘showcases a range of critical conversations across geographical and criminological work that seek to simultaneously open up and break down ‘the carceral’ in innovative, challenging and, at times, controversial ways.’
