Contemporary Intersectional Criminology in the UK

Examining the Boundaries of Intersectionality and Crime

Editors: and

In the first collection of its kind, criminology experts demonstrate the value of applying intersectionality as theory, framework and methodology in research. They explore applications including race, gender and age alongside a range of experiences relating to harm, hate crimes and offending, to shed new light on the causes and effects of crime.

This is the first collection dedicated to the use of intersectionality as theory, framework and methodology in criminological research.

It draws together contemporary British research to demonstrate the value of intersectionality theory in both familiar and innovative applications, including race, gender, class, disability, sexual orientation and age. Experts explore a range of experiences relating to harm, hate crimes and offending, and demonstrate the impacts of oppression on complex personal identities that do not fit neatly in homogenised communites.

Challenging conventional perspectives, it positions intersectionality firmly into the mainstream of criminology.

Jane Healy is a criminologist and Deputy Head of the Department of Social Science and Social Work at Bournemouth University.

Ben Colliver is Lecturer in Criminology at Birmingham City University.
