Carceral Crossings

Carceral Crossings provides a forum for researchers to explore the interactions between carceral geography and their own research and/or life experiences. The format is informal, comprising blog-style pieces of up to 750 words, excluding references. We are particularly keen to publish writing by Early Career Researchers (undergraduate, masters, doctoral, and postdoctoral).

Possible topics for Carceral Crossings articles include:

  • Discussion of carceral geography scholarship that has been formative for the author’s own research
  • Analysis of manifestations of carcerality in the news or in everyday life
  • Reflections on carceral geography research and methods
  • Discussion of learning and/or teaching carceral geography
